Russian Tea Cakes/Mexican Wedding Cookies
HI!!!! Yes I am back~I been sick for the past week and now that I am feeling better~MUCHO~better~still I have this head cold that I cant shake but hopefully in the up coming days I will get better~ughh~I hate it when my nose is dry, my head has pressure and it feels like a big balloon and I am about to explode~&~I constantly have to take a box of Kleenex tissue with me~ughh~just UGHH~~………that’s how my weeks has been and I hope that yours is better than mine. While on the road to recovery there has been alot of things going on in the past few days~1. Birthdays were celebrated~2.Relatives from out of towns came~3.A very much loved family dog past away~in short alot of baking in my kitchen has been going and I promise to post them all.
These Cookies or Cakes~you know what? You can decide what they are because I personally don’t see the difference~they are either called Russian Tea Cakes~or~Mexican Wedding Cookies~either way they are good and delicious~usually made and serve on holidays like Christmas~but in any occasion I think these delicate~crunchy & snowy white cookies/cake are just perfect~tiny ball cookies coated with powdered sugar with pieces of Almonds and Pecans~they are buttery~they are scrumptious and go perfectly well a cup of tea, Lattes, shots of espresso or what have you’s. I can just see it now~sitting in the back porch on a Sunny and bright day in the afternoon~gentle breeze is flowing~a good book in hand, a few of these little darlings with a cup of good tea~( mine is mint~I love mint tea) and you are set for the afternoon.
