This is my Hungarian great-great-grandmother's recipe. It is a family favorite every year. Once you make it one time, you will continue to make it every year.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Sift flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl. Use a pastry blender or fork to cut in butter until pea-sized crumbs form. Add eggs and vanilla extract and mix dough well.

  • Separate out 1/4 of the dough and chill in the refrigerator. Press remaining dough into the bottom and sides of an ungreased 15 1/2x10 1/2-inch jelly roll pan. Spread apricot preserves on 1/2 the mixture and raspberry preserves on the remaining 1/2.

  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).

  • Remove chilled dough from the refrigerator and roll out onto a lightly floured board. Cut into 1/2-inch strips and place diagonally across the preserves to form a lattice; press around edges to seal.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes.

  • Allow to cool and cut into squares. Dust the top with confectioners' sugar; this keeps cookies from sticking and looks nice, too.

Cook's Note:

You can use any preserves you like, but it's best to use seedless.
