Russian Tea Cakes

Do we choose our names or the name chooses us? Let’s make some Russian Tea Cake and see if it was happier with another one!

As I recently have a little time, I had been searching on the web a few days ago. Attempting to find fresh, challenging ideas, inspirational meals that I’ve never tested before, to amaze my loved ones with. Hunting for a while unfortunately could not discover too many interesting things. Just before I wanted to give up on it, I discovered this delightful and simple dessert by luck at Suncakemom. It looked so scrumptious on its photos, it called for quick actions.

It had been simple enough to imagine how it’s made, how it tastes and just how much my husband is going to enjoy it. Actually, it is very simple to delight the guy in terms of treats. Yes, I’m a lucky one. Or perhaps he is.Anyways, I got into the blog and followed the step by step instuctions that had been accompanied by impressive pics of the task. It just makes life much simpler. I could suppose it is a bit of a inconvenience to shoot photographs in the midst of baking in the kitchen as you may will often have gross hands and so i pretty appreciate the time and energy she put in to build this post and recipe conveniently implemented.

With that in mind I’m empowered presenting my very own formulas similarly. Many thanks for the thought.

I had been fine tuning the main mixture to make it for the taste of my loved ones. I have to say that it was a terrific outcome. They prized the taste, the consistency and loved having a treat such as this during a busy workweek. They ultimately demanded even more, a lot more. So the next occasion I’m not going to commit the same miscalculation. I’m likely to multiply the quantity .

This Russion Tea Cake Cookies is from SunCakeMom.

Old school

Chop the nuts to convenient size. We can use a mixture of nuts or our favorite one.

Add flour, butter, half of the sweetener, vanilla extract, salt and the chopped nuts into a mixing bowl.

Knead everything together.

Roll the dough into a log so it will be easier to measure out similar sized balls.

Measure out the desired sized balls. We like walnut sized balls that are about 0.7 oz / 20g.

Roll the dough into balls then place them onto a parchment lined baking tray.

Place them into a 375°F / 180°C oven until golden brown spots start to appear on them for about 30 minutes. Later they will be a bit more forgiving but now handle them with care.

Spread the other half of the powdered sweetener on a tray and roll the hot balls into until all sides are covered.

Sift a bit more powdered sweetener over the cookies then serve.
