Well one of my favorite cookies is Russian Tea Cakes. It seems they only pop up around the holidays and when I eat one it is like a party just happened in my mouth. They are almost so good that I want to grab the plate, smack away other peoples hands and horde them in my room. Which by the way I don't do but it does cross my mind. Well this week Mom made some for me and I am assuming for the rest of the family and they were so tasty. She got the recipe from bettycrocker.com but we have included here too. I give it 10 out of 5 stars. Yup they were that good.

1/2 cup powdered sugar
