The Christmas season has brought on variety of edible gifts. Everyday, there’s a new package on my table, waiting to be opened and consumed. There have been so much that I end up sharing the calories, but there was one particular gift that I considered keeping all myself.
I wasn’t particularly drawn to this food item because when I do crave for cookies, I go for chewy ones. These looked like the crumbly kind, looking similar to shortbread; your typical tea cookies, which I am not so fond of. I opened it out of curiosity since I had never had Russian cookies and boy, oh, boy, was I glad that I did. I first tried the pale, round cookies, which apparently are the original Russian cookies. They were so delicious! Buttery, crumbly and light with a nutty surprise in the middle. I was in love. My taste buds were so impressed that I tried another one, the white almond cookies. It tasted like the Russian cookies, covered in white chocolate, topped with the freshest and crunchiest almond. I could’ve finished the contents of that entire box but I controlled myself and re-tied the ribbon tightly to prevent further consumption.
Just for these cookies, I will willingly brave The Podium again.
The Russian Cookie House has stores at The Podium and at the Mall of Asia.
