Personal Notes:
When I was 6 years old I lived in the right half of a mustard colored stucco duplex at 554 Garfield, in Lander WY. Our neighbors were Ron and Tanya Johnson. Tanya shared her Russian family recipe for these delicious cookies. They store well in air tight tins, and are great to give as gifts.
