Oh, HI there! Happy Wednesday!

As you can see, and if you’ve been following, I decided to get all ethnic on ya this week and share a few things from my neck of the woods. I mean, why not! It’s damn good stuff!

Like that Savory Feta Cheese French Toast – hellllooooo delish!

Then we had that Apple Strudel Cake – ummmm… WOW! SO GOOD!

And today I’m showcasing these IN.credible pastries! Insane! They are just to die for!

Okay… nothing is really worth to die for, but you know what I mean.

To be quite honest, I had no intentions in cranking out all of “grandma’s recipes”, it just happened. It must be a sign. I need a vacay to Macedonia, asap!

And since I’m being so honest… can I tell you that I inhaled about 5 or 6 of these cookies without coming up for air? I’m just an open book. I have to tell you how it is. I can’t ever put these down. After having about 10 or 20, I freeze the rest (the remaining 10) for another one of those, I’m-feeling-skinny-today, let-me-eat-10-pastries-DAY.

This is your new favorite cookie. Right here, right now. For reals. Maybe I should have shared these with you during the Christmas rush, but there were so many cookies being passed around, I decided to wait. I thought they might fit better with the whole Valentine’s Day thingamajig.

Do YOU think these could pass as Valentine’s-ish cookies?! I think they can. After all, they are red, cute, and sweet. That sums up Valentine’s Day, right? You could probably even shape them into hearts! I am too lazy to do that. I just go for the classic look, ya know.

On a different note, I’m always a little hesitant about sharing these from-back-home-recipes with you because some of them require a little bit of kitchen skill. Just a little. For instance, this dough. It’s amazing, but it’s also a diva. If you don’t chill it, it will fall apart. Also!?! Using too much filling will make the cookies soggy, real fast.

Also, also!? Do not leave these on the kitchen counter. One, because they will disappear in seconds, and two, because, again, you don’t want to deal with sog-fest. Cover them and store them in the fridge. You can also freeze them for like 300 years. Or 3 months. Whichever one comes first.

ENJOY!

  1. Hi, we got there in the end and tastes really nice. BUT put more flour and make sure it does not stick- just soft enough to make into a ball with your hands and your good. Also a nice thin doe so it heats nicely through in the oven. The recipe is a little off with the flour otherwise very very nice. Thanks for the recipe. Merry Christmas.

  2. Is it ok to use bakers apricot. I wanted to make these, but am afraid the dough will puff up to much. But will try your recipe. Thanks
