“Jam filled Holiday cookies which have been a tradition for every Polish Christmas Eve I can remember.” - by Yvonne
Original recipe yields 4 dozen
- Warm milk to just above room temperature. Dissolve the yeast in the milk, set aside. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, salt and baking powder. Cut in the shortening until the mixture is mealy. Stir in the egg yolks and milk mixture. Knead the dough together and then refrigerate overnight.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
- Dust a clean, dry surface with confectioners' sugar. Knead the dough for a few minutes. Carefully roll out your dough to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut out circles with a cookie cutter. Place a teaspoon of jam on the center of each circle, fold the dough over, and seal the edge with a fork.
- Bake for 12 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven. Do not store in an airtight container or they will become soggy.

"This recipe is an absolute disaster and mangles a nice, traditional cookie. The dough is all crumbly, and no amount of additional fat can make it pull together. The amount of yeast it calls for is imm..." See moreense - four 1/4 oz. packages!! The dough reeks of yeast, even after baking. A TOTAL waste of time and ingredients."
"This recipe makes a lot of cookies. I made some apricot and some raspberry. One problem I had was getting mine to stay closed while baking. Perhaps I didn't roll my dough tin enough. I also thought..." See more my yeast would never dissolve. But once they baked they were delicious. I would make them again! They were a hit at my pre-schoolers "Polish" celebration."
