This is a great addition to your menu for the holidays or any time of year! A co-worker's wife made this for the holidays one year and I had to go back a couple of years after I quit just to ask for the recipe. Although it is called Russian Torte, it reminds me of a similar dessert that my Hungarian great-grandma used to make. At any rate, this is a bar cookie that is both delicious and has a really nice presentation, too. It may seem difficult, but is actually pretty easy to put together (prep time is a guess).
