1y ago

Small round cakes with different fillings are very popular in the Czechia, as well as surrounding countries. You can buy them in bakeries as grab-and-go pastry or they are essential for weddings as "výslužka", which is a box of wedding sweets to take home.

I love cheese curd, poppy, and walnuts ones. Today, I will share the recipe for cheese curd filling, but really, you can use everything including Nutella, jam, apples... anything.
