Did you know that I am part Hungarian?
I had a great grandmother who only spoke Hungarian that I adored and a grandmother who would make these amazing Kifli cookies and send them to me as me and my family traveled all over the world!
They would arrive in a beautifully packaged Christmas tin and wrapped in tissue paper with layers of amazing goodness. After my grandmother passed away my aunt and her daughters carried on the tradition of making them and would send them to us.
Folks, can I just say it wasn't Christmas until we had these scrumptious treats? They are definitely worth your time and effort. My kids always devour these when they arrive in the mail.
I wanted to share the recipe here with you! Here it is~
HUNGARIAN KIFLI RECIPE:
You can also fill these with jelly too (apricot is a favorite)--but the best is the walnut so try that first!
Tools you could use and are optional:
Pastry cutter wheel
Christmas tins (to store cookies in)
I hope you enjoy my favorite cookies!
