Russian tea biscuits are a favorite everyday treat from Cleveland, OH. Locals eat them for breakfast, for an afternoon nosh, at home and out at their favorite bakeries. If you aren’t from Cleveland, a quick glance at a Russian tea biscuit will make you think they’re rugelach. But don’t be fooled. At four to five times the size of rugelach, Russian tea biscuits are made with a different dough that makes them more like a pastry than a cookie.

This recipe is based on careful research of baking techniques and, of course, taste tests. That said, Clevelanders are quite opinionated about the style of their Russian tea biscuit dough. Some prefer a dough that is crumblier, while others lean towards a flakier dough. You will find this dough is delightfully flaky. Make sure you use full-fat sour cream or, for a slightly denser but still flaky dough, crème fraiche.
