  1. They look Soooo good!!! I will have to try with different fillings like yours :)

  2. Thank you for the recipe. It will be perfect for Christmas!

  3. This dough is wonderful .. I use it for other dry cake!

  4. I just wanted to say that I made them and they came out amazing. My husband and kids couldn’t stop eating them. I ate a lot too.
    I have a question for you, I divided the dough into 6 portions. I made rogaliki out of 3 and I kept the other 3 in the fridge. Can I freeze the dough? How long can I keep in there or in the fridge?
    Thank you again for all the wonderful recipes. You are amazing!

  7. You have 1 table spoon of vinegar, but no baking soda? I want to try to make them, just making sure there is no mistake… Thanks

  8. Love your recipe for these! I’v been searching for one without yeast. The dough is very easy to work with and they come out soft and flakey. Thanks so much!
