These are the cookies that my mom's Yugoslavian neighbor taught us how to make when we were kids. I can't believe that I found the receipe and as soon as I took my first bite, I knew it was them...

This sounds more like Hammentaschen which is a Jewish pastry for the holidays. The little square is supposed to replicate a holy man's hat.

I see some differences between my mom's recipe...she uses sour cream instead of cream cheese and instead of rolling out the dough onto a floured surface she rolls it onto a powdered sugar.

I learned how to make these Kiflis when I was in high school and made them almost every Christmas. I lost the recipe when I move this summer and am thrilled to find it on this site!Everyone lov...

Great recipe. Reminds me of childhood at Grandma's house. Ally M. Who cares about your review? It has NOTHING to do with the Kifli. Stick to the topic.

tasted great and got lots of compliments! :)

does this recipe freeze well?

well, this is a dessert, not the plain kifli. these kind of sweet kiflis are simply called like that but have other than Hungarian origins and I am looking for the plain kifli to explain my wife...
