These biscuits are also known as kifli. A buttery biscuit dough is enriched with egg yolks and cream cheese, filled with sweetened walnuts and baked.
These are the cookies that my mom's Yugoslavian neighbor taught us how to make when we were kids. I can't believe that I found the receipe and as soon as I took my first bite, I knew it was them. They are great and well worth the effort. I nice, light cookie that has a touch of sweetness. Excellent! - 07 Oct 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I see some differences between my mom's recipe...she uses sour cream instead of cream cheese and instead of rolling out the dough onto a floured surface she rolls it onto a powdered sugar. - 01 Apr 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I learned how to make these Kiflis when I was in high school and made them almost every Christmas. I lost the recipe when I move this summer and am thrilled to find it on this site!Everyone loves these and asks for them during the holiday season. This is the original recipe. They are worth the work!! Try them you will love them! - 17 Dec 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
