Melting Moments Cookies (aka Russian Tea Cookies)

Recipes are always available at: I did not name this recipe, it is the name given to it in my book. If it is not Russian, it is not my fault. What do you call them? It seems everyone has a different name for them and I find that very interesting! Apparently while all of these cookies are similar, they are not the same. Some have nuts, others don’t. They still have the yummy butter cookie though. I hope that everyone has a safe, happy Christmas. Be good to one another. Thank you so much for watching.

That’s what a cookie monster would sound like if he were Russian. :) )

    Domino Sugar is a Louisiana Corporation that has been around forever. Store brands are cheaper but Domino is the best IMO’n.
    My mom made these every Christmas and called them cocoons cause she rolled them in a log shape that resembled a butterfly cocoon Keebler mkts them as Danish wedding cookies

    Yep, that is what about 90% of the people call them.
    I like that name-sounds famouse ;) bwhaha

    At last, I finally know how to pronounce the word. :p I kept on thinking it was ny-yum after you explained it, but apparently the letters are more merged together instead. It sounds very similar to ‘yam’ (the sweet potato) or ‘yum’ though. The n is so soft and barely noticeable.
