This is a classic Polish cookie that my mom and Bushia used to make at Christmas time. Ive found that this is a really hard dough to work with, but it is from the original Polish recipe translated into English. These are not really sweet cookies, but they get most of their sweetness from the powdered sugar on the outside.
Traditional Polish mushroom soup. When I went to Poland I noticed all these cars by the side of the roads, even highways. I asked my now-husband where the people were. "Picking mushrooms." It's a national pastime, really.
