    Crafty Lady 13's Note:

    This is a "cakey" cookie recipe that I found years ago in an old cookbook that I bought at a garage sale. According to the book, these are traditional cookies served in Russia for the Christmas holiday.

      I really liked these! the icing complements well, and they are a very light and delicate feeling cookie. They're not too heavy, which I really liked for my summer fishing trip. Everyone liked them, they are a such a pretty color and I will be making these again soon. The only thing I did different was flatten them a bit before baking, they turned out very lovely. I used one large orange for the fresh juice and zest. Thanks for posting CL! :)

      Delicious! I made half a batch because I try not to have too many goodies lying around and it's a good (or bad?) thing I did. These are great. Definite danger of eating the whole batch! lol. I did add a little water to the icing because as stiff as mine had turned out it wouldn't have spread on these semi-delicate cookies. Thanks for the yummy treat! Reviewed for ZWT4.

      Decided to try some new recipes for x-mas cookies and really liked how these turned out - loved the citrus taste and of course the yummy icing.
