Happy Birthday Brandon!! Let Baking Season Begin!

Happy Birthday Brandon!!!

It's  my oldest son's birthday (Nov. 10).
Boy, am I getting old or what??
He is 33 today but will always be my first baby ;~)

Each year I make Russian Teacakes,
 his favorite cookie (my sister's and I's too), for him. 
This also kicks off our Holiday Baking Season.
These are truly yummy!!

Russian Tea Cake Cookie Recipe.


1 cup butter
