Feed Me: Kruschiki

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!!





Polish Bow Cookies-Kruschiki



  • Beat the egg yolks with the sugar until well combined.
  • Add sour cream, rum and vanilla and mix until smooth.
  • Sift the flour, baking powder and salt and add it to egg yolk mixture, a little at a time.
  • On a heavily floured surface knead the dough vigorously, punching and squeezing as much flour into it as it will take until the dough is no longer sticky (1/2 hour).
  • Separate dough into several portions and roll very thin.
  • Turn the dough and loosen often when rolling.
  • The dough should look like parchment paper that you can see through.
  • Cut dough into strips approximately 1-1/2 inches wide, 4 inches long.
  • Make slit closer to one end and bring the longer end through the slit. Heat oil to 375 degrees and fry quickly (only a few seconds) until golden not brown.
  • Turn only once.
  • Drain on paper towels.
  • Dust with confectioners sugar.
  • Makes 8 dozen.
