Russian Tea Cakes by The Russian Cookie House


Russian Cookies and Pistachio Cookies

The stall of The Russian Cookie House is hard to miss at the SM Mall of Asia. Near the Director's Club theater, the stall is pretty fetching, with its shelves adorned with elegant looking boxes containing arrays dainty looking pastries- Russian Cookies (Russian Tea Cakes), Pistachio Cookies, and Jan Hagel. They offer free-tasting, another reason to get lured in. I tried all of their pastry offering and my favorites were the chocolate-covered Russian cookies and the chocolate-smeared Pistachio Cookies. The buttery crumbly cookie and bittersweet dark chocolate was distinctly new to me and I imagined they are perfect with my afternoon coffee or tea break.

The store offers boxes with assorted varieties of the cookies- Russian Cookies and Pistachio Cookies, chocolate-covered Russian Cookies and Russian Cookies, etc.- but, lucky me, absolutely no chocolate-covered Russian Cookie and Pistachio Cookie combo. I settled for the Russian Cookie and Pistachio Cookie combo instead.

A bit of history on the Russian Tea Cakes from Wikipedia:

Russian tea cakes appeared in Russia in the 18th century, literally as a confection used in a tea-sharing ceremony. By the 20th century, they were a part of wedding and Christmas traditions in the US, by their popular "Russian tea" nomenclature.

The Russian Cookie House also offers mini bite-sized and sugar-free versions of their cookies. What is not to love?

Aside from SM Mall of Asia, you can find The Russian Cookie House at the Concourse Level of Powerplant Mall, Rockwell Center, and in Bel-Air, Makaty City. You may also call to order. Their numbers are: 896-5707, 897-1115, and (0917) 895-2863. Or visit them online at www.russiancookiehouse.multiply.com.
