In my neighborhood there is a place with best cream horns in Warsaw. It’s called Rurki z Wiatraka, they were established in 1958. It’s family own small business, once pandemic started and we all got locked down, they came to the edge of the bankruptcy. They ask for support via Facebook and soon there was 2 hours’ queue of people wanting to try their delicious horns. Fortunately I was not forced to wait, I could make Homemade Cream Horns by myself, thanks to my neighbor Ewelina, who borrowed me her Grandma’s horns molds:)Continue reading “Homemade Cream Horns”
I remember my sisters making Jello Cold Cheesecake years ago, when we were all living with parents. I don’t know if they used this recipe, but I know for sure it was as delicious and colorful and we all loved it:) My son Pit, who is a picky eater, even if it comes to sweets, he liked this cheesecake:)
Note: In Poland we have standard jellos packages for half liter of water. If they are different packages in your country, please take this into account and recalculate recipe or amounts of jello used.Continue reading “Jello Cold Cheesecake”
Polish Poppy Seed Roll Makowiec is traditional Polish dessert, in my family we always have it for both: Christmas and Easter. My mum makes it without any recipe and makes 4 rolls each time, I made my best to put her instructions in writing and limit the amounts to make 2 rolls. Makowiec for me smells like Christmas. The last few years when I go home for Christmas I always assist my Mum to make Poppy seed rolls. We would seat in the evening, when all the family is resting, my Mum is kneading and then we’d waiting for yeast dough to rise.Continue reading “Polish Poppy Seed Roll”
I am lucky to have birthday in June! I love this month, as strawberries are in full and best season, the cheapest and the most sweet. Polish Cheesecake with Strawberries is a must for me to take to the office for my colleagues:)
This time I prepared baked cheesecake, very easy to make, delicate and not very sweet. It take some time to finish it, as the jelly needs to settle, but this is a case of work organization. Make cheesecake one day before serving, it needs a night in a fridge to get the best of it.
I like to have lot of jelly on my cheesecake, I use double package of it and together with strawberries I add some blueberries, this is the best mix I know:)Continue reading “Polish Cheesecake with Strawberries”
