About this recipe: These little pastries from Poland are so simple to prepare and melt in the mouth. They can be made with different flavours of jam to suit your tastes. Lovely with a hot cup of coffee.
This is a family recipe for me as well so I have made literally thousands of these cookies over the years. A few comments/suggestions. First, they aren't the same as danishs so if that's what you are wanting then keep looking. Second, these really should only be made with butter. Margerine just isn't the same. Third, we always prepare the dough the night before and refrigerate it overnight. The dough needs to be cold and rolled as thin as possible. I think this will help with some of the complaints about the cookies not sealing well. Finally Solo filling really is the best. The consistancy is thicker and better suited for these cookies. - 10 Aug 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Excellent cookies. Not alot of ingredients, but it still takes awhile to prepare. I used a pasty cutter and cut out small squares instead of circles, they were much easier to overlap over the cookie. Also, I used Solo pie and pasty filling instead of the jam. - 18 Dec 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I loved these they were very easy to make and I only had a few problems with the jelly coming out. Hint: If your dough is not sealing right put a little water on the tip of your fingers. - 22 Dec 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
