    I'm Hungarian too! I remember Grandma making these cookies! They are delicious! She would actually cry if we didn't stuff ourselves! I plan on posting more Hungarian recipes and I always enjoy finding them too! Thanks for posting! :)

    I look forward to collecting more Hungarian recipes. I think I have a Hungarian chicken recipe too. I'll post if I can find it. :-)

    My Grandma's best dish was Chicken and Dumplings. She never wrote anything down or measured a thing! I would spend alot of time just watching her cook, and over the years, I have recorded what she did to the best of my abilities! That's why it's taken me some time to come up with recipes reliable enough to share! I promise I will eventually post them all. She passed on before I got the chance to get her recipe for a soup with a clear beef broth and small square noodles! Did your Grandma have any recipes that sound like this?

    Where I'm from in Pennsylvania, Chicken Pot Pie made like a soup with pot pie noodles (which are small thin squares) rather than a crust. I now live in TN and haven't been able to find pot pie noodles here so I have to get them when I go back to PA to visit or have family send them to me. Not sure how available they are in other parts of the country. I have to get the pot pie recipe from my aunt but when I do I will post.
