Looks like something you'd find in a bakery. I LOVE "old world" cooking and baking. I come from a line of wonderful cooks on my dad's side as well. Mine and dh's childhoods was filled with these kind of treats. My husband's was mostly from his grandmother, who seemed to be able to cook and bake for 20-25 people like it was hardly anything at all, and she literally did every Sunday. She was all of 4ft 9in, and ran her kitchen like a drill sargent...lol!

I'm really enjoying all your family recipes, but reading them is making me homesick, not to mention hungry...HA! But glad you're keeping your traditional recipes going. I try my best to do so also. It always amazes me how certain foods/recipes bring a bond to holding family together. And I like that! And since you are one to keep tradition, I'm gonna guess here and say that you know what I mean when I say that.

Thanks for posting the pix with the recipes. It makes it easier to do, at least for me. :)
