Only one word for these. GREAT! I added a LITTLE more whiskey. :-)))))
Almost like Moms
These bring back some incredible edible memories! My mother and grandmother made them when I was young. If you like a light thin pastry that is not too sweet you will love them too. They are sooo good! I can't wait to make them for the holidays.
I make these the traditional Polish way. To keep from being tough no egg whites. 13 egg yokes. Small container of sour cream. Flour until it stops sticking to your hands. I have never made them in under 3 hours. Type of alcohol does not matter. I use whiskey. I usually use 2 boxes of xxx sugar. They melt in your mouth.....remember don't be afraid to kneed the dough....there are no real measurements of ingredients. Super light and super tasty.
Thank you!!! I love these wonderful hoiday cookies, but never knew what they where called.
This recipe is "spot-on"! My Babcia (grandmother, in Polish, pronounced "BAHB-CHA") and I made these by the bushel at Christmastime and even for Easter, and whenever there was a truly special family event (weddings, etc.). We would make this dough just like this, and she would put in the whisky (we used Calvert's Blended Canadian Whisky back then; it is no longer available, but Black Velvet or Seagram's 7 will work just fine). We would put the dough together, then roll it out in batches, really thinly, and form them, and then I would stand at the stove and fry, fry, fry... it took us a whole day, but it was a day well-spent. As I said, we would make them by the bushel, and we would use a dozen eggs for one batch. Excellent pastry!
This is the exact recipe my mother used. The recipe makes a lot. Sometimes I will freeze some after they have been rolled, cut and shaped. Freeze between sheets of parchment paper. When ready to make them, remove from freezer and fry. Be aware, do not make them on a warm and humid day because they will lose their crispness.
these cookies were so great! They really do melt in your mouth and are so fun to fry! :)
