This is a GREAT recipe. I used 3 leaping Tbsp of flour, and they turned out fantastic! I was born in Poland and I know what these are supposed to taste like. It was so frustrating trying out recipes for Nalesniki because they turned out wrong, until I found this one. Thank you for the delicious, perfect recipe!

Made this awhile ago and forgot to rate it. This is my go to Nalesniki recipe. Easy and good when I want something a little sweet for breakfast that doesn't require baking. This is nice w/ Lingonberry Jam. The one star reviewer obviously has not even tried the recipe.

We had these for breakfast and filled them with Lekvar Prune Plum Filling (or Apricot) #54692. Yum!
