  1. Thanks for the facts about Estonia. I know nothing about it so it’s fascinating to hear about a place that is new to me.

    This recipe looks interesting. I remember as a kid my mom would often make “Mayonnaise Cake” which sounded awful the first time I had heard of it. Those words don’t seem to belong together. And yet, when she added chocolate, sugar, and the other ingredients and topped it with buttercream frosting it was as amazing as, no doubt, these cookies are.
