Virtual Cookie Exchange Day Two

Day Two is definitely a yummy Virtual Cookie Exchange full of sweets and treats!
Be sure to visit all the blogs for inspiration and ideas. They'd love a comment, too.


I'm sharing my blog with Barb today and she has a yummy recipe and cute project!

I'm sharing the Slovak Nut Roll my mother-in-law taught me to make. This is one of the four 
Slovak foods I needed to learn to make before she gave permission to marry her son. She and my
 father-in-law immigrated to this country as children and were proud of their Slovakian heritage. 
I taught my daughters to make this and now that they have families of their own, my husband 
Bill and I make it for the holidays.



 This is the Towering Tree that I am making for Christmas gifts. On a quilting retreat the first 
week of December, I will be making the Christmas Tree Farm Table Runner for my own table.


Thanks for hanging out on my blog, Barb!

Check out these other amazing treats!

It sounds like fun to learn to make food from another culture from your MIL! I love the cute tree project, too. And Carol, thanks for hosting the blog hop - I'm really enjoying all the posts!

Thank you for sharing that recipe, Barb. I believe I have tasted something similar before, and it was awesome. You can't go wrong with Eastern European food, always delicious.

Looks like you learned well. Your Kolacky looks fabulous. What a cute Christmas tree topper too!

My grandparents were Germans from Russia and my Mom never would have been given permission to marry my Dad if she had been required to learn to cook some traditional meals. LOL!

That recipe looks amazing! I want to eat it right now but I don't think I could do this recipe justice. Very cute tree as well.

I make kolace every Christmas, New Year's and Easter. I have a recipe from Slovak cookbook too, but slightly different. I do not put the dough in the fridge.

LJ said...

Barb, that's an fun and interesting recipe. I love new things to cook. Thanks for sharing.

Kathleen said...

Those recipes are priceless - as is the story. I grew up in Reading PA and have a Polish SIL who bakes a mean Easter bread and won't share the recipe with anyone. We waited in lines for these at the Polish church when I was young! Now I have an authentic recipe!!!

Hi Barb (and Carol)! Thank you so much for sharing the Kolacky recipe. It looks delicious, and I would love to make it. I wonder if something besides walnuts could be used for the filling? Is there some other filling that would still be traditional? I'm allergic to nuts, unfortunately. The table runner looks like it will be a fun addition to your holiday table. ~smile~ Roseanne

This looks very interesting to make. Thanks for sharing.

Farm Quilter said...

What a lovely recipe!! I have the walnuts, just need to grind them up!! Thank you for sharing some of your family's heritage! Your tree is adorable, Barb!!!

Barb: Thanks for sharing the nut roll recipe! I'm wondering if poppy seed can be substituted for the walnuts in the filling? My family loves these at Xmas. Thanks also for the neat tree runner idea.

Carol: Wondering if you might be willing to share your mint cookie recipe? Calico Joan of Moosetrack Quilts has peaked my interest in these, but not provided the recipe
