I don’t know about you, but I am still full from Easter. This year we spent the morning with my husband’s family and the evening with my family. It was a great day with TONS of food. My husband’s family is Polish and a few years we brought these fried pieces of dough called Kruschiki that we found at Costco. The next year we couldn’t find any anywhere so I thought “how hard could it be to make?” I’m not asked to contribute much to the meal, but the past few years I have been making home-made kruschiki. Kruschiki, also known as Polish bow tie cookies, are fried pieces of dough covered in powdered sugar. I have the most difficult part of the recipe is rolling the dough thin, it can get sticky-and it makes a MESS. They are super delicious and you don’t have to be Polish to make them. They kind of remind me of funnel cake…mmmmm! Happy Tuesday everyone!
On another note this is our 300th post! Thanks for reading!!
