Author Notes: This is my first recipe for Food52. The recipe comes from my grandmothers cookbook, so this is our family cookies. Try the mouthwatering (word was hinted by my English teacher) taste.
Apart from I want to tell you about baking soda (not baking powder ). When we use baking soda sometimes we add vinegar for more mealiness. Like in this recipe we extinguish baking soda. Put 1 teaspoon of baking soda to empty tablespoon and pour 1 tablespoon of vinegar, so the mix will be hiss.
Notice, I have been learning English since September. Please tell me, if something wrong in English. —Tsyganova
