June Meyer's Authentic Hungarian
from Theresa Jerger
The Hungarians were not adverse to borrowing a good recipe when they saw one.
My sister Theresa Jerger adapted this recipe from an older one. It uses vegetable shortning instead of lard, and uses baking powder to make the dough lighter. This was a pastry that was made often.
It is easy to make, delicious to eat and beautiful to look at. Nice to give. makes a lot!
Regards, June Meyer.
