     *  Russian Cookies -- This recipe is from Mrs. Malinch, my little
     high school Russian teacher.  I usually make this recipe at Christmas or
     My favorite fillings are poppy seed and walnut.  A recipe for the walnut
     filling is included.  The poppy seed filling can be found canned (Solo
     brand) in either the gourmet or cake section of most grocery stores.
         6    dozen Kolachki.
     *  The kolachki are delicate, so do not throw them in a plastic bag or
     high in a jar as you would cookies.  The kolachki can be frozen.
       Difficulty:  moderate, the assembly requires nimble fingers.
       Time:  30 minutes preparation, up to 2 hours cooling, 15 minutes
       Precision:  measure carefully.
