It's time to fill the tins with Little White Cookies (aka Russian Teacakes).
Each layer is separated by a square of waxed paper. This one is finally full!Then everything goes into the redneck fridge--the garage--until it's time to deliver. Three tins are filled with Little White Cookies, two more to go. Then I need to find out what else they want? Regular fudge, peanut butter fudge, buttermilk fudge, English toffee, caramels or maybe something I have forgotten.
This year I think I will make fruit cake--I'm getting a late start on it.

Trent is the only one I know of who likes it. He says it's good with a steaming cup of wassail--which I used to make but have no idea where the recipe is. My fruit cake is fruit and nuts and just enough batter to hold them all together--red and green candied pineapple, red and green candied cherries, Marciano cherries and walnuts. When sliced thin it looks like a stained glass window.
Now to find the recipe.

Maybe Trent will get fruitcake next year. Actually, if made properly this year it would still be wonderful by next year.

If you don't make Russian teacakes maybe it's time to start a new tradition for your kids or just yourself. Recipe here.

And if you fruitcake recipe is the best--not good or great but absolutely the best you have ever tasted and you are famous for it, send it to me because in searching three recipe boxes my recipe has not been found yet.

Blech to fruitcake. The cake part is good but that "fruit" should only be used as a garnish. Like marachino (spelling?) cherries on top of ice cream. I see you filled my tin. What a nice mama.

Oh Lynne. I will always remember when I was the recipient of these wonderful cookies. I'm excited you are sharing the recipe. I know they are a labor of love. I love you and miss you.
