Notes

These Cookies remind me of a cookie my mother used to make at Christmas time. I don't have her recipe, but this is pretty close. I got this recipe from the McCall's cookbook but tweaked it a bit :)

The ex-husband called these Russian Tea Cakes. They were good with a cup o joe.

A dash of local for every season
