The name of a Polish pastry? Chrust?

I visit a local Polish bakery and they sell a wonderful pastry that they call Snoogle. It's a dough somewhere between phyllo and puff pastry and has a light sweet cream cheese filling. It's long and has a light glaze on top. It is baked, not fried It is to die for!! I have been searching several German and Polish cookbooks trying to find a recipe.

Does anyone have any idea how to make these?

Sounds like they could be 'eklery' (eclair) or maybe 'napoleonki' although the latter I know as not particularly elongated.

Come to think of it... No. Just look at their website: kiedrobakery.com as it explains that their snoogle was a result of an "accident" :-). So, it is not really a Polish pastry, but I trust you it tastes great!!!

Americans will call them "Angel Wings". But the Polish word is "Chruscik" pronounced like Crew shicki. And I just made some this past week. Very easy and sooo good! My mother in law use to make this but if I wanted it I had to do it with her. The only mess is the deep fying, getting rid go the Cisco!

We also call them butterflies. They're my favorite Polish pastry :)

hroost - what a great transliteration!
I saw also translation: pastry straws
Chrust primary means: brushwood.

Original recipe from my mother and probably grandmother. Expensive and cheap variant (also for gas and coal kithen!).
I don't want to risk the translation. May be any merciful soul will help.

CHRUST b. dobry
Składniki: 5 żółtek, 2 łyżki cukru, 0,5 łyżki octu, 2 szklanki mąki, 4 łyżki śmietany (lub dobre kwaśne mleko), 1 łyżka masła, 0,5 płaskiej łyżeczki proszku do pieczenia, olejek rumowy.
Wyrobić ciasto, trochę je pobić rzucając o stolnicę, wałkować b. cienko, formować faworki i zaraz rzucać na gorący tłuszcz. Temperaturę tłuszczu sprawdzić wrzucając kawałeczek ciasta na rozgrzany tłuszcz - jeśli zaraz wypłynie temperatura dobra. Chrust po wypłynięciu chwilkę posmażyć i odwrócić widelcem lub drutem na drugą stronę. Wyjąc z tłuszczu, osączyć, posypać cukrem pudrem. Tłuszcz odstawić z ognia albo przykręcić gaz i przygotować następną porcję. Faworki przygotowane wcześniej "piją" bardzo dużo tłuszczu, dlatego robi się je tuż przed wrzuceniem.

FAWORKI TANIE
Składniki: 2 łyżki śmietany, 1 łyżka cukru, 2 żółtka, olejek rumowy, szklanka przennej mąki. Zrobić ciasto i piec faworki j.w.

Bon appetit!

What is the right name for dough rolled with nuts? A friend referred to it as "tushka" but I can find no Polish description based on that word. I think the right word is similar but cannot identify anything close.

It's a simple puff pastry with cream cheese filling. Purely German but widely made in several forms. This bakery had left over ingredients and did whatever used it up quickly. It's a mass production and rolling like a long cigar was quick and easy. Another local bakery first made them and marketed them under the name Snuggle. Snoogle is merely a spin off and not an original. Easily made. Frozen puff pastry dough, cream cheese, vanilla extract (adding,almond extract by choice), sugar, and an egg. Spread the cheese filling onto dough and then rollup and bake. There's your German/Hungarian pastry.

Chruściki are mass-produced by a US company "White Eagle" (which bright person came up with thatLOL) and available in many mainstream supermarkets up and down the Eastern seaboard:-)

Typically, they're flaky, crusty and coated with confectioner's sugar. Quite tasty indeed!
