  19. Hello - lovely ideas.

    I already was signed up for the Sewing Loft Blog and just signed up for the other blogs and am waiting for my requests!!

    I also 'liked' all three shops, "twittered" all three.

    I just made a batch of Russian Tea Cakes this past Saturday with my cousin third generation, age 11 1/2. She had never had them nor ever made them. They were a hit as she wanted to eat more than a few. We are saving them for a Thanksgiving Evening cousins get together. All the times she has been here baking with me, this was the first time she wrote down a recipe to take home with her.
    Some folks call them 'butterballs' 'Italian butter balls', walnut butterballs', 'pecan butterballs' or Russian Tea Cakes. A cookie by any other name .....

    thanks much
