Today is the first day of Dish Ditty’s 12 Days of Christmas Recipes! It’s hopefully a new tradition that you will enjoy.
Another first for us and likely for any food blog… we are now going to be putting our stories and other text after the recipe. When I go look at a recipe, I rarely read the bloggers detailed diatribe about what the recipe means to them, how they came up with it, etc. unless I like what I read in the actual recipe itself. And from other articles and blog posts from non-food bloggers, I’ve seen similar sentiment. So, today marks day 1 of putting the Recipe First!
As for this recipe? I have a longer detail on my original post of Grandma’s Russian Tea Cakes Recipe, but the short story is that it is a family recipe passed down from my Grandmother. I do not know where she got it, but I’m pretty sure it came from this Polish cookbook for Americans that she gave to my mom as a wedding present. You can find the book on Amazon: Treasured Polish Recipes for Americans.
