Brooke’s Russian Tea Cookies
Fork and Beans virtual Advent calendar:
Being injured depresses me.
This wrist issue has really thrown a wrench into my plans.
Being hopped up on pain meds has left me unable to think clearly,
not to mention that my plan to make all of my Christmas gifts
has gone straight down the drain this year.
I hate it when things don’t go as expected!
Maybe if I sing a little bit, it will cheer me up:
It didn’t work as I had expected.
Today I am feeling more quiet than usual.
I have been sitting here at the computer for what seems like hours,
trying to figure out what to say only to find that my mind is blank.
How do I have nothing to write about?
I even fell back asleep while trying to draw something out of me.
Apparently, I bored myself.
So I’m not even going to fight it today
and just go straight to the recipe.
And since I know that all of you are just the greatest,
you will understand and let it slide just for today…
Make sure to check out Brooke’s original and gluten-filled version!
These cookies are a delight.
I love the process of making the tea-infused butter
and the way that it slightly flavors the overall taste.
I topped mine with a bit of powdered sugar
just because I am fancy like that.
