"I have made a similar recipe for years, they are very good, melt in your mouth. I have also made them, omitting nuts and using finely diced maraschino cherries."

"I have been cooking and baking for over 50 years. Do NOT make these cookies! They are horrible and have NO flavor. I took them to a cookie party and everyone was very disappointed. I followed the recipe exactly as it was written and they were awful."

"Kheaps - yes these do Freeze - would recommend after thawing to roll in confectioners sugar again to make them look great. These are also known as Russion Tea Cakes. A favorite of mine for a LONG time."
