Nearly every year around this time I make my Grandma’s Russian tea cakes (veganized, of course).  They are yummy, fun to look at, and an all-around great Christmas cookie.  But this year, they turned out even better for me than they usually do.  I don’t know if it was the 1940’s radio program (Phillip Marlowe) I was listening to, the quiet evening I had leading up to them, or just having one right out of the oven, but hooo-boy!  They taste just like Grandma used to make!  Memories of Christmases past came flooding back in just one bite.

I should probably research this more.  I’ll make a control group and then a hot chocolate group.  Yep, it’s going to be a long night.
