Cookie-A-Day #3 Russian Tea Cakes

Sing this one to the tune of White Christmas aloudwhile you sit in your office in front of everyone sothat you can go home early because you have LOST YOURMIND!

I'm dreaming of a white cookie, just like the ones made out of dough
where nuts are baked on, the sugar's caked on, the kind that looks a lot like snow
I'm dreaming of a white cookie, like the ones I really love to bite, man they really taste out of sight and may Russian Tea Cakes all be white Russian Tea Cakes.

Oooh, I have to try these. I will pretend that I'm Julie Christie in Dr. Zhivago - now where is my sleigh and big tall hat.
