My Polish mother, Zosia, taught me to make these delicate Christmas cookies. She called them chrustki but others call them chrusciki, faworki, or angel wings. They’re very delicate and crumble easily so don’t wear your fancy black sweater! - Jenny Jones
These are amazing! You would not believe that there are only 3 ingredients in the dough. My Great-Grandma used to make these every Sunday. The dough has a delicate cheese taste and the filling is nice and tart. They also have a BEAUTIFUL presentation! I've never paid attention to how many cookies it makes or how much time it takes so that is a guess. I know it looks like a lot of steps, but it is not hard to do.
Authentic European bohemian-style kolaches (koh-LAH-chee), unlike the open, filled versions found in most of the U.S., have sweet dough wrapped around the fruit filling. In this recipe, canned fruit pie filling makes the treat easy to assemble.
