This past week, my nine year old son had to do a cultural project for school. Since my husband's father is Polish, my son decided to find out more about Poland. This included information on my favorite thing which is food. Most of the children decided to make some kind of cultural dish so my son picked a traditional Polish cookie.
I was very proud of my son as he did most of the research himself. He is a fairly picky eater so I didn't expect him to stray from the path of picking a simple dessert. Since his class has a few nut allergies, we also stayed away from any recipes that contained nuts. We came up with this buttery cookie that contains hard cooked egg yolks. The dough is refrigerated and twisted like a pretzel. Colored sprinkles or sugar are added to the cookies before baking. This is a wonderful recipe to make with kids and I will add it to my holiday collection.
My son was so proud of his cookies. He was ecstatic when they were all eaten up too.
1 egg, beaten well
