Review1:“LONG LIVE HOLIDAY COOKIES! And these are some of the best ever. Really, it’s not the holidays without a Russian Tea Cookie. I think this will pair famously with my glass of champagne…”
Review2:“Amazing recipe that my family LOVES! I’ve found that placing about 6 or 8 cookies at a time in a ziploc containing the powdered sugar works excellent! I just gently jostle them and just like that… no mess!
Review3:“I tried this recipe.
One word.. PERFECTION. Everybody liked them, they thought I bought them :). Super easy and super delicious.
They have similar to those were I live but since it’s an Arabic country they add cardamom and make them plain.”
