Pryaniki to Russia are perhaps like doughnuts to US, they are one of the most common type of cookies you will find throughout the country. They are soft on the inside, with a sweet glaze all around. Most often they’re served with tea or coffee.

Russian Pryaniki in a bowl and on a table napkin

After going through several Pryanki recipes, I almost lost the hope of finding the one that tasted just like the original Pryanik we had in Russia. This recipe turned out just right. We took a bunch of these on our family trip; they were gone before all other desserts and just flooded with compliments.

Cookies can stay fresh in an air tight container for up to a week.
