Recipe by SheCooksToConquer
I can't believe I found this! When I was a kid, we used to pray to get sick so my grandmother would make this for us! It's my ultimate comfort drink. My cookbook says it's Hungarian and/or Austrian, but my grandmother was from Poland. She made it for us kids wiithout the brandy, but it's fabulous either way. (You can also use brandy extract in place of the brandy.) Kids will love it. I found it in "Jewish Cooking from Around the World" by Josephine Bacon. It's marked dairy and kosher for Pesach.
