Day 6 of 30 Days of Cookies are Russian Tea Cakes.
What are they you ask? “A reason for the common name “Russian Tea Cake” or any connection to Russian cuisine is unknown. Some have speculated the recipes either derived from other Eastern European shortbread cookies, may have migrated to Mexico with European nuns, or may have been associated with cookies served beside Russian samovars (tea urns). By the 20th century, they were a part of wedding and Christmas and Easter traditions in the U.S., known by their popular “Russian tea cake” or “Mexican wedding cake” name.
