I have the same recipe from my grandmother and we made it today - with this recipe's help (we didn't know about the vanilla!) You really need a pasta machine for rolling out the dough but otherwise it was perfect!
Thank you thank you thank you!
I was sohappy to find this recipe. My grandma used to make these and the recipe went with her. I want to thank Dianne.
made these today for the first time.....they are very close to what we usually buy in the store....I will definitely be making these at home from now on....thank you for sharing.
good cookies, fairly easy to make.
THIS IS THE FIRST RECIPE THAT HAS COME VERY CLOSE TO THE RECIPE I GOT FROM MY GREAT AUNT WHEN SHE CAME FROM POLAND. I USE 1 1/2 CUPS OF SUGAR - NO VANILLA BUT 1/4 CUP OF WHISKY. MY FAMILY LIKES THEM ROLLED THIN AND ROLLED THICK. THE THICK ONES TAKE A LITLE EXTRA TIME TO FRY I NEVER HAVE PUT THEM IN AN AIRTIGHT CONTAINER, I FIND PUTTING THEM IN A BROWN PAPER BAG KEEPS THEM NICE AND CRISP IF MY FAMILY DOES NOT EAT THEM FIRST.
Thank you so, so much for this recipe. My grandmother and mom used to make this for our first day of school when I was younger. My grandmother is gone and my mother had a stroke and can't remember how to make these... she memorized the recipe. You have brought back many happy memories to me with this recipe. God Bless!
thank you for replacing my Aunt Julie's Recipe I lost in moving only difference she used Apricot Brandy otherwise is the same thank you peace
I made these cookies for my daughter's heritage day celebration at school. They were a huge hit! I did add a few dashes of salt into the powdered sugar when I dusted the cookies. It gave the sugar a nice twist.
