These cookies are worth every minute it takes to make them!! The lemon and orange zest add a great element of flavor, and I'll tell you a secret..I snuck WAY more than 1 or 2 !! They are rich, crisp, and absolutely wonderful !! I left the cognac out because I didn't have any--the cookies were terrific just the same!! I'm going to add these little gems to my Christmas Cookie list of 'must haves'--will make many times in the future!!! THANK YOU!!! Teresa

No Polish Christmas Eve would be complete without this tasty treat. Although I don't make it with the lemon or orange additives, the recipe is just the same. I do have a hint that will either save you time or give you more time to make more!! My sister and I use our pasta maker to crank out the dough. What used to hours takes slightly more than one hour ..providing we don't make sure that the cognac isn't spoiled......Hope this helps! Merry Christmas to ALL! Jan

This is the recipe we have always used, spelled Csorege in my Grandmother's Hungarian cookbook. These were the cookies we kids asked for on special occasions, we even had a rhyme about these, same as the "I scream for ice cream" rhyme but "I shriek-y for ka-shreeg-eee" instead. These never last more than fifteen minutes in our house and Christmas isn't Christmas without these. Soooo good. We save these for special occasions because they're a little time-consuming to make, but they are definitely worth the effort. Make sure you flour the heck out of your rolling surfaces because this dough sticks like crazy.

This is the exact recipe I have for these wonderful things. The only difference being, we always called them "favorki". Different name, same wonderful cookie. They are also incredible drizzled with honey right before eating. Definitely worth the trouble and time.
