    Hello Kristyna,
    Thank you very much for the recipe. I would like to make this soon.
    I have a question…
    How do you store these cookies. Can i keep them in the fridge like some of your other cookies? Will the icibg melt if i keep them in the fridge??
    Thank you

    My Father’s parents are from Czechoslovakia (actually Bohemia they would have said) and I have so few recipes from them. Thank you for doing this.

    We always made these at Christmas and called them “butter wreaths” . They were my favorite! I’m glad I found your website.

    I made these for my mother-in-law last Christmas. I used my homemade blackberry jelly as the filling. Tasted fabulous. The jam bled into the frosting turning it slightly pink…still tasted great!

      I am glad to hear you liked it. Yes mine also bled into the frosting when it set for some time. Makes it fun looking. 😀
