Grandma’s Polish Cookies
Total TimePrep: 45 min. Cook: 5 min./batch
My grandmother made these a lot. My mom tried to make them while grandma was still with us. Never could get them the same. She asked grandma why and grandma said you didn’t put in the vodka. Grandma’s recipe was never written down and mom wanted to have a recipe to pass on. Thanks for the memories...
My mother and grandmother used to make these all the time. The secret is to roll the dough as thin as you can get it. Wonderful!
our family made these by the bushel for weddings. the sisters would get together and filled every surface with the wonderful treats. 6 sisters - -can you only imagine. one of the best christmas memories too .Love them
These are similar to my German grandmother’s kiechla (not sure of spelling). Although we cut into diamond shape and pulled one end thru slit. Very yummy. We also dipped into dark Karo syrup.
My grandmother made these every Christmas, literally hundreds of them. She was Norwegian and they were called Fattigman. (Pr: FUTTY-mon). Then, I met my boyfriend and his family is Polish and they were Kruchiki to them! LOL, a simple fried buttery dough in many northern European homes.
These are similar to the Danish Klejner my mother and grandmother made every Christmas. I loved them. We add a little cardamom. Great memories, thanks!
This is (almost) like my Serbian recipe, which is called Cheregi (sp?) Just delicious! Mine adds a jigger (shot) of whiskey into the dough. My mother always cut long strips with a pastry wheel, which has a fluted edge and then cut strips across into pieces on a diagonal. Of course, dust with sifted powdered sugar.
a neighbor of ours when I was a kid made these. (they were polish). She'd make them for Christmas every year. One of my favorite cookies (and favorite people! They're gone now and I miss them). Don't think she added whiskey or bourbon in them
My mother used to add a shot of whiskey or bourbon also. It kept the dough fluffy. And also, they mad a slit it the dough and brought one side threw, so the kind of looked like a bow tie
my mother used to add a bit of whiskey to hers
