This is my Grandmother's recipe, brought with her from Eastern Europe in 1910.
8/07/15...I just learned from a second cousin of mine who's grandmother gave her the original recipe that before sprinkeling the loaves with cinnamon and sugar, to brush the loaves with beaten egg white, for 30+ years I couldn't understand why my sugar didn't stick on. Now I know, thank you Michelle for setting me straight and thanks to tante Minnie for passing her recipes on to her sister Lena
(my grandmother), who passed them on to her daughter my Aunt Martha, who gave it to me.
