This year I am adding another fried dessert to our menu – my mother’s Kichels. I haven’t made them in years. It’s time. They’ll give us yet another reason to remember Nana and her special ways and her special treats. And her recipe is very easy. The big trick for fabulous Kichels is rolling the dough as thin as possible. It takes some time and patience, but the result -- crispy, puffy, delightfully light cookies with just a sprinkle of sifted confectioners sugar – is so worth it.
