Found a JAP cook (Deb Crane) who also makes/posted the Hungarian Kiffles cookie recipe. This is an old, handed down recipe that comes from Hungary, and is a traditional Christmas cookie as it often made in cold weather. It’s a light cookie, and often becomes very addictive and gets rave reviews. The fillings vary, but I think because cream cheese is in the cookie dough which makes this cookie a pure delight for any party or holiday festivities. And because it freezes well, can be used throughout the year!
