RUSSIAN TEA CAKES
Mix one cup of sugar, one cup of eggs (about five), and one cup of sour
cream with enough flour to roll. Toss on board, roll out one-fourth inch
thick, spread with a thin layer of butter, fold the dough over, roll and
spread again; repeat three or four times, using altogether three-fourths
pound of brick butter. Then place dough in a bowl, cover, and let stand
on ice to harden. Then roll as thin as possible, strew with one cup of
chopped almonds, sugar and cinnamon, and cut into seven-inch strips.
Roll each strip separately into a roll, cut into squares and strew top
with chopped almonds, sugar and cinnamon. Bake in a hot oven.
