    I dont know if this is just a pennsylvania dutch treat or a german treat but back in the day I used to be an assistant manager in a petshop that was family run (i wasnt related). For the holidays they used to make kiffels (spelling?). They're expensive to buy in the market and I wanted to learn to make my own. Anyone have a recipe they'd share?

    I've never heard of them but I done a google search and this is just one of the ways. It looked like there were a lot of versions but thaey all sound good.

    6 c. flour
    1 lb. butter
    2 yeast cakes
    1 c. sour cream
    3 tbsp. sugar
    10 egg yolks
    Grated rind of lemon

    Mix all ingredients together and refrigerate overnight. Mix and sift 1/2 flour and 1/2 powdered sugar together to use on board for rolling out the dough. Fill the kiffels with walnut filling or whatever filling you prefer. Bake at 350 degrees. When cool sift powdered sugar on them and enjoy. Use beaten egg whites mixed with ground walnuts, also add lemon rind grated and nuts for great flavor. Add sugar to your liking.
