Russian Pecan Meringues – You may have never heard of Noodle Cookies before, but they come from a long tradition of dishes and desserts made with noodles, nuts, eggs and sugar. My Ukrainian grandmother used broad noodles to prepare Kugel with cinnamon. The Ukraine has a definitive noodle history. As far back as the 16th and 17th century, evidence shows that noodles began to appear in Russian cuisine. Even earlier, noodles were known to exist in third century AD China. Today, handmade noodles with eggs are rolled and crisped in the oven, folded into a brown sugar pecan meringue, then baked into a crunchy cookie. Be generous when you hand them out to children and neighbours, family and friends. There won’t be a crumb of disappointment anywhere.
Thank you Olia Hercules for including this recipe in your book Mamushka: Recipes from Ukraine and Eastern Europe. It’s a real winner of a cookie.
