Who can resist dough that’s deep fried and sprinkled with powdered sugar? The answer is no one! These cookies aren’t much more than that, dough and sugar but there’s something so special about this humble little treat. We’ve prepared a dough, cut it into slices, then twist them into a bow-like shape that many describe as looking like wings, and given how quickly these disappear, it’s like they’re flying right off the plate! Making these cookies is always a process filled with wonderful memories and a few stories shared about family get-togethers and good times. As good as these cookies are, the memories and stories are almost better.
Certain sweet treats are often associated with holidays or celebrations, and these cookies definitely fall into this category. They’re not quite a “cookie” in the traditional sense, but they are made with dough and sweetened with sugar, and so we don’t mind that the category seems to loosely fit this delightful dessert. Grandma’s Polish cookies are one of those beloved family recipes that we look forward to making year after year, for both the sweet memories and the sweet treats.
