    I have this same recipe and a non electric type of oreshki iron. How do I use this type? Is it oven or stove top? I would love any pointers you could give me on making these cookies, we love them!

    Great Recipe. I just wanted to add a tip for all - I have bought an Electric Party Pastry Maker from Manetia . Worked a treat and was actually much faster to bake - only 5 minutes!

    At first I wanted to buy the simple set but then decided to get the extra interchangeable plates that make it possible to bake x-mas shapes and waffles.

    I think its easier to use an electric set like that.

    Oh and there is a video on YouTube with a recipe - just search for Party Pastry Maker Manetia

    i am planning to make these this weekend, but there seems to be a step where the butter/margarine is added?
