These are our favorite cookies for Christmas. About as addicting as potato chips! Mom would make tons of them - a roasting pan full! We would just keep them on the dining room table and every time you walked by you had to take a few! For storing these cookies, just cover lightly with aluminum foil so they stay crispy.
Traditionally, Chrusciki (hrrooss-CHEE-kee) are associated with the pre-Lenten feasting of Mardi Gras. In America, chrusciki or Polish crullers are served at any special occasion.
