"Kiflik are Hungarian cookies, the singular term being 'kifli'. We always make them around Christmas time and have plenty to share with people. The traditional fillings are raspberry, apricot, lekvar(prune), poppyseed, and walnut."

May we suggest



  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Using a pastry blender, cut the butter into the flour until it is dry and crumbly.
  3. Add egg yolks and sour cream until it is blended well. Use your hands only to gather it into a ball.
  4. Roll medium-sized portions out onto a VERY well floured surface. Roll it rather thin, not more than 1/8 of an inch thick.
  5. Use a sharp knife to cut into small squares, about 1.5-2 inches on every side.
  6. Put a small bit of filling onto each square, fold two opposing corners into one another, pinch closed.
  7. Put on greased cookie sheets, into the oven for 10-13 minutes. They should remain quite pale.
  8. To make walnut filling:
  9. Mix all ingredients together. This stays the same size when you bake it, so only put a small amount on each square.
