Do we choose our names or the name chooses us? Let’s make some Russian Tea Cake and see if it was happier with another one!

As I most recently have some time, I had been looking on the web the other day. Attempting to find new, interesting thoughts, inspiring recipes that We have never tasted before, to amaze my family with. Hunting for quite some time but could not discover lots of interesting things. Just before I thought to give up on it, I came across this delightful and simple treat by chance on Suncakemom. It looked so fabulous on its snapshot, that required fast actions.

It absolutely was simple enough to imagine just how it is created, its taste and how much my hubby might want it. Actually, it is very simple to impress him in terms of desserts. Yes, I am a blessed one. Or perhaps he is.Anyhow, I went to the website and simply followed the detailed instuctions that were combined with great shots of the operation. It just makes life rather easy. I could suppose it is a slight inconvenience to take photographs in the midst of cooking in the kitchen because you usually have gross hands and so i pretty appreciate the time and effort she devote for making this post and recipe conveniently followed.

Having said that I am encouraged to present my own recipe similarly. Thanks for the thought.

I was tweaking the main formula create it for the taste of my loved ones. I have to mention it had been a terrific success. They prized the taste, the overall look and enjoyed having a delicacy such as this in the midst of a busy workweek. They ultimately asked for more, many more. Thus the next occasion I’m not going to make the same mistake. I’m gonna double the amount .

Original Russion Tea Cake Cookies invented by suncakemom.

Old school

Chop the nuts to convenient size. We can use a mixture of nuts or our favorite one.

Add flour, butter, half of the sweetener, vanilla extract, salt and the chopped nuts into a mixing bowl.

Knead everything together.

Roll the dough into a log so it will be easier to measure out similar sized balls.

Measure out the desired sized balls. We like walnut sized balls that are about 0.7 oz / 20g.

Roll the dough into balls then place them onto a parchment lined baking tray.

Place them into a 375°F / 180°C oven until golden brown spots start to appear on them for about 30 minutes. Later they will be a bit more forgiving but now handle them with care.

Spread the other half of the powdered sweetener on a tray and roll the hot balls into until all sides are covered.

Sift a bit more powdered sweetener over the cookies then serve.
