Don't know where I received this recipe but it's very good and I've made it for years. Very Simply!

It looks similar to my family's recipe. Could it have come from yours? I once tried a Russian cookie that wasn't anything like Russian Tea cakes. Can't seem to find a recipe, though. They sure were delicious!
