    Sarah Chana's Note:

    My Ukranian-born husband has long reminisced about these delightful treats from his childhood. I've taken this recipe from "Please to the Table," a wonderful cookbook by Anya von Bremzen and John Welchman. I'm looking forward to trying it for an upcoming holiday! Preparation time includes overnight refrigeration and 30 minutes in the freezer. The actual work time is about 20 minutes.
