The 12 Days of Cookies and Cocktails
These little Russian Tea Cake Cookies bring back childhood memories in just two bites. Also known as pecan snowballs, perfect round sugar coated cookies are perfect for your next cookie tray.
Russian tea cake cookies… I don’t think I knew such a thing even existed until I was an adult. My dad makes the best chocolate chip cookies ever. And his chocolate peanut butter ones are a must have. I recall rolling sugar cookies with him a few times as a child too… but these light melt in your mouth perfect little bites I discovered much later in life while baking with a friend. Her family made spritz cookies and pecan snowballs along win several other and there was no going back, my love of choclatd chilcookkes always on top, but now a new cookie would occasionally sneak.in and case a craving or two.
Its weird how we can associate a fold to one person. Connecting it forever in flavor to that one person who you hold dear. My fathers cookies, my friends spriz, your grandmother’s pasta sauce… the lis.hpes ona and on. These aromas and flavors so deeply bonded to our memories that nothing, no matter how great, can ever replace that one bite. These may not be the same picture perfect recipes you see on he cover of magazines. Maybe mom buys extra large eggs to bake with, or Poppop cooks with margarine and not Unsalted butter. Whatever those simple nuances are, they make those recipes special. They embed them on your tongue and in your memory to recall for years to come.
That’s what makes our recipes special. Not with the traine skills, but with years of personal touched that make it your own.
