With a multitude of schedules to juggle, our Christmas celebrations extend over ten days this year. The celebrations began this morning with two of our children and a breakfast of homemade cinnamon rolls. Our celebrating won’t end until our large family gathering on January 2nd. So, as my family and I celebrate with different meals and groupings of family and friends, it seems like a wonderful to time to share different treats from our holiday season.
Typically, I post only new recipes, but the treat with which I want to start is one I already have shared, chrust. Chrust is a fried Polish cookie that was made every year of my childhood. So, what better way to start than with one of my oldest Christmas memories?
These cookies are best eaten within moments of cooling and dusted with powdered sugar. Even though I don’t enjoy fried foods, there is a soft spot in my heart for these treats. Biting into one reminds me of being a little girl, waiting to sprinkle powdered sugar on the cookies while my dad fried them.
Here is my family recipe used to make these cookies.
