Ready Time

59 mins


38 servings


  • 46 egg yolks
  • 3 pints sour cream
  • 6 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 teaspoons salt
  • 2 cups butter
  • 26 cups all-purpose flour
  • 5 cups shortening
  • 1 cup confectioners’ sugar for decoration


In a capacious bowl, meticulously combine all the ingredients until they form a cohesive ball.

Transfer this ball onto a generously floured surface and engage in kneading for approximately 30 minutes.

If employing a stand mixer with a dough hook attachment, efficiently mix for about 15 minutes.

After kneading, allow the dough to rest for 10 minutes, granting it time to relax.

On a well-floured surface, skillfully roll out the dough to achieve a thickness ranging from 1/4 to 1/8 inch.

With precision, cut it into uniform strips measuring 3 inches in length and 1 inch in width.

At the center of each strip, make a lengthwise slit of 1 inch.

Demonstrating dexterity, pull one end of the strip through the slit, forming an elegant bow shape.

In a suitable frying pan or electric skillet, carefully melt the shortening and meticulously heat it to approximately 350 degrees Fahrenheit (175 degrees Celsius).

For a frying pan, this corresponds to medium-high heat.

Gently place the cookies into the hot oil and attentively cook both sides until they acquire a light golden brown hue.

As soon as they attain the desired color, promptly remove them to a paper towel-lined surface to drain excess oil.

To enhance their visual appeal, dust the finished cookies generously with confectioners’ sugar.

Savor the delectable results of your culinary endeavor, yielding approximately 38 servings of these delectable Polish Potato Pancakes.
