behold...the russian teacake!



























my all time favorite christmas cookie, I bake these every year. I always use half the amount of butter and roll the balls small. I also make sure I bake them for only 10 minutes. but don't be afraid to try the recipe as suggested - I am sure most people would prefer the original russian teacake!

I love Russian tea cakes. Half the butter? really, you can do that? I would never dare, but since you've already tried it and declared them to be good, why not!

Good ole Betty Crocker the bible of cookery. Sorry I use all the butter, love the way the butter sops up the powdered sugar. It's just me. :-)
Oh and great shot. PGma

Yum! (both the photo and the teacakes)!
I'm about to fix an afternoon cuppa—sure would love one (or more) of these to go with.
