Hi Everyone,
My grandmother was Polish and she use to make a cookie for her family that was either wrapped in cheesecloth and dropped in to a bowl of ice water for awhile then rolled out and cut and filled with pineapple or apricot perserves. Does this sound familiar to anyone the recipe was lost with my grandmother's passing would love to give it to my mother. Thank you

The Polish Tea Cookies were very nice - I used glacé cherries, which I think must be quite similar to candied cherries? They tasted okay, anyway!

Polishgirl, here's a bunch of my family's Polish Christmas cookie recipes. I wish I had one for the cheesecloth one someone mentioned. Try the pierniczki (spice cookies) if you want gingerbread flavor.
And here's one for Polish Christmas dessert recipes.

I hope this helps!

i tried these cookies lately and it's heaven! i love them and maybe you'll try them also...

here it goes:

3 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 tablespoon baking soda
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
3 sticks butter at room temperature
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1 1/2 cups packed light brown sugar
3 eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla
3 cups semisweet chocolate chips
3 cups old fashioned rolled oats
2 cups sweetened flake coconut
2 cups chopped pecans (8 ounces)

Preheat oven to 350° Mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and
salt in a bowl.
In 8 quart bowl, beat butter until smooth and creamy, about 1 minute.
Gradually beat in sugars and continue beating to combine, about 2 minutes.
Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating after each. Beat in vanilla. Stir in flour
mixture until just combined. Add chocolate chips, oats, coconut and
For each cookie, drop a 1/4 cup of dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet,
spacing 3 inches apart. (I don't use a 1/4 cup-more like a tablespoon)
Bake 15 - 17 minutes, until edges are lightly brown. Remove from rack to
cool. Makes 3 dozen large cookies.
