These cookies were inspired by khokhloma painting.
Khokhloma painting is the name of a Russian wood painting handicraft style and national ornament, known for its vivid flower patterns, red and gold colors over a black background, and the effect it has when applied to wooden tableware or furniture, making it look heavier and metal-like.
When I was a child, my mom had a khokhloma wooden box and it was full of little treasures.
