kruschiki

This was my birthday treat: my aunt made Kruschiki for Christmas, and brought some up for my Mom. Kruschiki are a sweet bow tie cookie, Polish in origin, and when they are made with a heavier dough, make for a hell of a dunking cookie. My buddy, Rita, bought me a new mug with peppermint hot chocolate mix in it, so I made that up to dunk the kruschiki in.

Yes, it is my birthday, but sometimes you need the kruschiki-it is the Christmas week breakfast of champions, and just nibbling on them this morning, well, it brought me back to my childhood. Of course, life was easier then, but you know what? For a fleeting moment this morning?

” Life is good.”

  1. My mom used to make these! She is of German/Irish/English/Slavic descent. Certainly it’s the Slovenia part. Surely she got the recipe from her mother.

    HAVE A WONDERFUL BDAY WITH DUNKING COOKIES IN YOUR FAVORITE COFFEE, HUGS FROM BIRD AND SNUGGLES FROM FURRY LOVED ONES!
    (I’m sure some are wondering how can a “Bird” give a hug?! LOL!)

  2. Love kruscki (I know I spelled it wrong). Haven’t had it in years. Didn’t think anyone made them anymore. I remember that they were very difficult to make. Enjoy!
