This recipe is from my grandmother: the secret is to roll the dough thin for a light, crisp cookie. Polish bow tie cookies.

This is my grandma's (Sophie) kolacky recipe, and it probably came from her grandmother in Poland. My family can't get enough of these at Christmas.

Rogaliki (Polish Jam-Filled Crescents)

Rating: 5 stars 2
Similar to Russian rugelach, rogaliki are a traditional Polish sweet, a mixture between a pastry and a cookie. You'll love the soft texture and jam filling. Try using different jams in the same batch to get a variety of flavors.

Old German-Polish Recipe for Lebkuchen (Christmas Cookies)

This is a family recipe that I received from my mother-in-law. They were German-Polish farmers in the early 1900s on the eastern Germany-Poland border. This is a chewy, honey-based Christmas cookie. Melt dark chocolate and apply a thin coat to the cookie (as an extra treat)!

Rogaliki Holiday Cookies

Rating: 4.5 stars 3
This is a Polish cookie my aunt used to make as a Thanksgiving holiday treat. Although I'm not Polish, I make them too, and serve them on a cold winter's night with hot coffee or tea.
