Pastries in Prague - dining suggestion and recipe questions

FML | Sep 15, 2003 05:30 PM

I was just in Prague, and I tried some delicious Czech pastries at Pecivo Lahudky, this little deli-esque place about a block away from the Municipal House and Powder Tower. It looks like a hole in the wall from the outside, and I initially went in to buy some bottled water. However, their array of pastries behind the glass counter looked so appetizing that I couldn't resist, and I'm glad I didn't. I went back twice in my three days in Prague, and typically spent about 50-60 Koruna (about $2) for two little pastries/cookies plus two sodas or bottled waters.

Anyway, I liked what I had there so much that now I want to replicate some of these recipes on my own. Can anyone offer suggestions of recipes for the following and/or good Czech (or perhaps Eastern European) dessert cookbooks?

-kokoska
-oreckova koule
-kacenka
-puncova koule

(I might have spelled some of these wrong. I had to write them down quickly.)
