My husband is 1/4 Polish. This recipe has been passed down from his great grandma, and I don't want to loose it, so I thought, why not share it as well? Oh, just a side note. My first time trying to make these (a month after our wedding)...I literally burned the kitchen down. So, for you not so experienced cooks like I was 13 years ago....getting oil hot does not mean you wait for it to boil and you should NEVER cover it with a lid! ;0) Hope this recipe brings you as many wonderful memories or reminds you of old ones as it has for my husband and me.
