    Dee514's Note:

    This is one of those recipes that every European nationality has their own version of. The Italian version (Guanti) is usually made for holidays and special occasions, as is the Polish version (Chruscik). The Chruscik recipe is my hubby's Polish grandmother's recipe. The Guanti recipe is my Italian grandmother's recipe.

      I have a recipe for this called Krusthi, Ukrainian recipe, for the same thing. I also have a special cutter for the dough, I got from Goldas Kitchen. It makes the slots and the right width of the cookie, you just do the putting through the slot.
