I love these cookies. Recipe sounds just like the ones my Hungarian Mom made every Christmas. I have her recipe and now I make them. Always been one of my favorite holiday cookies.

this recipe is very similar to how my grandmother made her cookies. Brought me back to my childhood in Plzen, Czechoslavakia. Thanks!

My goodness.... I remember my slovak gramma making these when I was a kid. Totally forgot about them till I found this recipe. Just like hers. Can't thank you enough for this.
