  1. I have made the original lemon recipe to rave reviews! The most foolproof cookie in my repertoire-thank you Dorothy. I really appreciate the variations. I just made the double chocolate; I wanted a citrus tone so kept the lemon flavourings. I swapped out a 1/4 cup flour for cornstarch because I like the texture it imparts to “shortbread” like cookies. Thanks again and Merry Christmas

  2. Definitely Mom’s Russian Tea Cakes, my all time favorite. Many many years ago I used to live above a Polish lady who made the absolute best Christmas cookies ever. One of the cookies that she made was Russian Tea Cake. They were so delicious that I never forgot how good they were. Thank you for posting the recipe.

  3. My family has been making Russian Teacakes for as long as I can remember — I’m in my 60’s. The last few years my 4 older sisters and I have gotten together for some Christmas baking. Russian Teacakes are always included. The last 2 years, we also made your Double Chocolate Snowballs. I also remember Peppermint Snowballs and last year we just swapped out walnuts with pistachios. Looking at all your Snowball recipes, we will have to choose another flavor to add to our baking this year. The Pumpkin Spice sounds awfully good. Thanks for all your recipes!
