Katerina - Did you ever post your Czech cookie recipes? My mother-in-law made delicious vanocka and other cookies. She never passed on the recipes ( I wasn't worthy), but now that she's gone, I'd like to make those again for my husband. That woman had major flaws, but she was a heck of a baker...that is, until she decided that all of us ate too much sugar and fat, and so she wrecked her own wonderful cooking by eliminating as much as she could. Ever had a barely sweetened apple strudel? Marvelous paper-thin crust, with a filling that would permanently pucker your mouth!
