Doesn't everyone know what KRUSCIKI are? Polish Bow Ties! My wife Geri had this tradition for as many years as she can remember that family would gather around the kitchen at Stella's house and make these KRUSCIKIs. She wanted to continue the tradition so she invited some family and some non-Pollack friends to make, and learn how to make these Christmas treats.

There was flour everywhere and Chrisco Oil boiling in the big fry pan. Many, many eggs were cracked and dough rolled. Not my favorite treat in my low cholesterol diet. However, I will eat one just to test it's authenticity. My kids used to call these treats "Crushed Chickens". So if you're all good boys and girls maybe Geri will invite you here next year to be among the chefs.
