Ingredients

How to make it

  • Blend in bowl with a wire pastry blender until dough forms together.
  • Roll out like pie crust on a lightly floured surface. Cut in 2 X 2 inch squares.
  • Put a dab of Apricot or Prune Lekvar in the middle of square.
  • Take up two of the opposite corners and bring the two corners together with a squeeze over the dab of Lekvar.
  • Note: If you have a pie crust trimmer with a crimped wheel, you can use this to cut all the 2 X 2 squares.
  • It makes a beautiful presentation. All the pastry edges have serrated edges.
  • Bake on a buttered and floured cookie sheet at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Do not let burn.
  • Dust with Powdered Sugar.

    I just made these and they all opened up. When I went to roll out the dough I found that it was sticking too much so I added extra flour to the board and the rolling pin - could this have caused it? I pinched and they still opened.
    Would really like some advice on this since the dough is delicious and want to make again!

    Thank You for this recipe! I've been scouring my Mom's old cookbook for it (she passed 4 months ago) and I was so sad I couldn't find it! Now I can make them again! Hooray! They are my favourites.

    Made these for a Hungarian dance event. They disappeared like magic! However, the dough is pretty unusual and lots of the cookies flopped open while baking. I folded them shut (ouch! hot dough!) and cooled them face-down and they looked okay. Tasted fantastic!

    Ever try this with lemon curd? I have a huge three pound block of cream cheese here. Guess what I'll be making? I love your dough recipe. Its a perfect combination of flour, butter and cream cheese! Love this recipe!!!

    Where do you get Lekvar, what is it, or can I make it myself? This sounds so good! I love making different cookies every year at Christmas from different countries, and I hope to try this one. Thanks for the post.Can you message me?
