I had otherwise (better) plans for today's situation but these soft, two-bite Ugrian Yuletide Cookies (Kiffles / Kolaches) are right too unspoiled not to part directly! So saintlike, in fact, there were scarcely sufficiency left to pic this greeting! [Oops]
Conventional Ugric Apricot Kolaches | My European economise's loved Xmas Cookie instruction! He says they savour just like his gran utilized to gain!
