These are delicious Czechoslovakian sweet pastries. A cream cheese and butter enriched dough is wrapped around an apricot fruit filling and baked to perfection.
If you can't get your hands on apricot compote, use a high fruit apricot jam instead.
I made these last night, and they're already all gone! They were a success, and although I was a little intimidated since it was my first time making a cookie like this one, your recipe was so easy to follow. (And delicious!) Thank you! - 16 Nov 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Loved it. I used Raspberry filling instead and it turned out great. - 05 Aug 2014 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I used to make these with my grandmother many years ago. For fruit filling, she always used drained pineapple tidbits, or crushed pineapple. it is very important to drain it well, and she would press it to get more of the liquid out. Tasty, but probably less authentic Czech variation....But my grandmother was the daughter of Czech immigrants, and this was otherwise the same as their handed down recipe. She just liked the pineapple variation, which just shows that you can use different fruit fillings to your liking. I love them! - 15 Mar 2016 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
