Today I made Russian Teacakes! They may look a little strange... but they're so good, I can't stop eating them! They are a little like a pecan sandy, since I made them with pecans, but I also used almonds... so it's a bit different. In the picture above you can even see little pieces of almonds and pecans!
If you're wondering what the texture is like, it's not sandy but it is little crumbly... however it somehow retains its moisture in the center because if the sugar coating. Once you pull these out of the oven you wait a bit and then roll them in confectioners sugar, then you have to wait a little more and roll 'em again. At the end of this process you get a nice candy coating, which you can actually see in the first picture.
Imagine a pecan-almond-sandy coated in sugar! That is pretty much what these are... They are delicious little 1 inch bites of joy that can be devoured at a moments notice.
