    Dawnab's Note:

    One of my very favorite desserts growing up in a small eastern mill town, I was thrilled to find this in a Taste of Home Magazine and even more suprised to not find it here. This stuff is perfect traditional ethnic holiday fare. Cook time does not include rise/cool time

      Being half Polish, and never tried this recipe, I gave it a whirl.... my other half loved it. I think I may have rolled it a bit tight though,as the filling wasn't as thick as it should have been. But Thanks a million, it will make my Christmas this year.
