Reviews of Hungarian Kifli

6-15 of 23 reviews   << Previous - Next >>

  A cookie baker  Jan 28, 2008
Would make this again.
I had a college friend many years ago whose mother sent Kiflis to her from time to time. We, the roommates, would hover around her until we each got a sample. I was remeniscing about those times and thought I would check on internet to see if I had remembered the cookie name accurately. I had. Interesting. 5 stars

I make these with sour cream & apricot and nut fillings. Like several others I make little baskets. Then when baked, I sprinkle with powdered sugar. My grandmother from Hungary made these then I found my mother-in-law did too, thus both sides of family love them. 5 stars

Would make this again.
I love this recipe. I make it often. My Father is Hungarian, and his comment is that they are not the correct shape. These are too small to turn into crescents. Instead of 24 pieces per round, a more authentic proportion would be 12 or even, dare I say 8 per round! The taste cannot be beat! I always get thumbs up for taste from Hungarians. 4 stars

Would make this again.
This was good, but it was better rolled in powdered sugar since there is no sugar in the recipe. 4 stars

Would not make this again.
My grandmotherwas from Lithuania and these are nowhere even close to the Hungarian Kiflis that she made. the recipe she passed down is more like thebaker from Canada's' recipe. 1 star

Would make this again.
The only thing missing from this recipe is the confectioner sugar sprinkled on top after they are baked. That is how my Hungarian Grandmother taught me. 2 stars

Would make this again.
These are NOT KIFLI's in the Hungarian meaning.
Kifis are crescent-shaped pasteries about the size of a small sausage in the shape of a crescent moon, filled with either walnut or poppyseed mixtures.

Would make this again.
I learned to make kiflis from my Hungarian grandmother in the seventies. She used a raised dough made with yeast and made her filling with honey, sugar, walnuts and chopped ruby or golden raisins which makes the simple dough and the sweet honey raisin flavor exceptional. I have four men in my house who don't like sweets and they love this recipe. It is our family's favorite Christmas cookie. Grandma would be proud. 5 stars
