The first cookie I typically make when I start my Christmas cookie baking for the season has been Russian Tea Cakes (aka Mexican Wedding Cakes). This year I decided to try a little bit of a twist on the traditional cookie by adding some crushed peppermint to the cookie dough, and then rolling them in crushed peppermint again. The peppermint is a perfect variation to this favorite cookie, making them a festive holiday treat!
