Russian Tea Cookies
Russian tea cakes (or Russian tea cookies), Mexican wedding cakes, Viennese almond crescents—many countries have their own version of these melt-in-your-mouth butter-and-nut cookies. This one was created by Yigit Pura of Tout Sweet patisserie, in San Francisco and Palo Alto. We love it for its extreme crispness and toasty brown-butter flavor, and because it's not too sweet; most of the sugar is on the outside.
