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 lately have some time, I was searching on the internet last week. Trying to find fresh, challenging ideas, inspirational recipes that We have never used before, to treat my family with. Looking for a long time yet couldn’t find too many interesting stuff. Just before I thought to give up on it, I found this tempting and simple dessert by chance. It seemed so delicious on its image, that called for instant actions.
It had been simple enough to imagine the way it’s created, its taste and how much my hubby is going to like it. Actually, it is rather simple to impress the man when it comes to desserts. Yes, I’m a blessed one. Or possibly he is.Anyways, I went to the webpage: Suncakemom and simply used the step-by-step instuctions that had been accompanied by nice graphics of the method. It really makes life much easier. I can suppose it is a bit of a inconvenience to shoot pics down the middle of baking in the kitchen as you usually have gross hands so I highly appreciate the time and effort she placed in for making this blogpost and recipe easily implemented.
Having said that I’m inspired to present my own, personal formulas in a similar fashion. Many thanks for the idea.
I had been fine tuning the main recipe create it for the taste of my loved ones. I’ve got to say it absolutely was a terrific outcome. They prized the taste, the thickness and loved having a sweet such as this in the midst of a busy week. They quite simply asked for more, a lot more. So next time I’m not going to make the same miscalculation. I’m likely to twin the volume .
This was inspired by Russian Tea Cakes from SunCakeMom
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.
