Family Story

These have been a tradition for Christmas in our family through 4 generations. My grandmother brought the recipe from Hungary with her in the early 1900s when she was twelve and we have enjoyed them since. My father who was not Hungarian called them “ Snigglefritz” as a joke because he couldn’t remember KIFLI.


1 Step

Nut Filling: Mix walnuts,sugar,milk and cook for 15 minutes until thickened stirring occasionally to prevent burning. Add cracker crumbs and vanilla. Keeps well in the refrigerator but bring to room temperature before using.

2 Step

KIFLI Dough: Warm milk and add butter to melt and yeast. Add flour and salt and mix well. Pinch off pieces about the size of walnuts and roll into oblong shape. Fill with nut filling and roll them up. Put on ungreased cookie sheet close together and brush with egg white and bake at 350 degrees for 1/2 hour. Makes 70-100
