Food Friday: Praeaniki

I was actually told two different names for these cookies, which taste a little like gingerbread, but not so gingery (with a sugary glaze like donuts on the outside). IMG_0764 At the magazin, where I bought them, I was told they were called  Preaniki (pray-ahn-eek)*, which I later discovered was Russian, not Romanian (evidently they are Russian cookies).  In Romanian they are called Torte Dulci (tor-tay dool-chay), which means “sweet cakes”.  IMG_0765                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             *approximate pronunciation
