Russian Tea Cakes
Very Dry & bland!! This is NOT a melt in your mouth recipe.
I thought I would try this recipe it is simular to one I have that my mom baked all the time during the holidays. A recipe she's had from 1940/50's.
I threw the whole thing away. I had my family try them with out telling them which recipe it was. No one liked this recipe posted.
They all like my family recipe. my recipe uses 1c crisco, 1c real butter, 1/2c gran sugar creamed togeather, 4tsp vanilla, 4c flour, 2c walnuts, 2 bags powdered sugar to roll warm cookies in. Baked @ 325 abt 15 minutes.
She called them Tattle Tale cookies, because she made so many to sell. She would hide them,myself & 5 siblings would find them & sneak to eat them including my dad & as kids you don't think about cleaning up the trail of powdered sugar, so she started calling them Tattle Tales.
I would not recommend Russian tea cakes.
