cookie recipe: hungarian kiefles


hi, it’s Kailea! with all this holiday talk i wanted to post a small re-cap of my mom’s infamous Hungarian Kiefles (aka cookies) that she makes every year for thanksgiving day but they make yummy holiday cookies too!!

what you will need:

the dough:

1 1/2 cups Flour
1/4 lb. butter (a great vegan alternative is earth balance)
1/4 cup cream cheese (vegan alternative: vegan cream cheese from Galaxy Nutritional Foods. can be found at Whole Foods)

the filling:

optional between the two:

2 cups chopped walnuts
1 1/4 cups of sugar
3/4 cups of water


fruit filling (jelly is a great supplement to making your own fruit filling)

do it:

1. to prepare the dough, mix all ingredients together and roll into small balls (approximately 25) and let sit overnight in the refrigerator.

2. the following day: preheat the oven to 350 degrees

3. roll out the small balls into flat little saucers

4. to make the walnut filling, combine walnuts, sugar and water together into a small mixing bowl into consistency is pretty dense

5. use teaspoon size amounts of the filling and place onto the small saucer-like size pieces of dough

6. roll the dough to cover the filling, leaving the ends open for ventilation

7. place on an un-greased cookie sheet and cook for 25 minutes.

8. take out of the oven and viola! Hungarian Kiefles!
