I found this wonderful Polish recipe in a Chgo. newspaper in 1975.
Carol S. carried on a family tradition with this recipe handed down to her from her grandmother Anna B.
I have made and given this recipe to family and many friends, it is always a favorite with all.
My favorite fillings, are poppy seed and apricot!
