My old grandma used to make a crispy powdered sugar coated pastry and I recall she called it something like "Kris-chooky"

Does anyone know how that Polish pastry is spelled and pronounced please?

Thank you very much,

chruściki would be my guess

hroosh-CHEE-kee (the initial ch is like Spanish j if that helps)

One way to get round this is to use the other name for Polish angel-wing pastries: faworki (pronoucned: fa-VOR-kee).

No it's not. In Cracow we call it chrust (hroost)

THANK YOU ... I remember the FaVORky as clear as day from 50 some years ago ... and was starting to think this was a false memory ... thanks for confirming my memory ...
