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)
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.
Polish Christmas Cookies
My mother in law has a polish name for these but my husband and brothers always just called them "Polish Christmas Cookies". They are very easy to make and have a nice anise flavor to them.

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
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.
