This is the recipe that I learned to make when I was little from my Czech grandmother. She would bake these by the dozens and since I was the only granddaughter that lived in town, I got to be her helper. These pastries are also sold at the annual Czech Days in Tabor South Dakota by the thousands. The women of the area prepare hundreds of dozens of these every year to be served with meals at the Beseda Hall and at the Legion home and are also sold by the dozens to visitors to the celebration. The most popular fillings are prune and poppyseed, although cherry, apricot and cottage cheese are also popular.
