I know food isn’t the reason for holiday celebrations, but a abundance of yummy dishes certainly adds to the festivities and marks the day as something more than the ordinary. One of the nice things about having a house full of guests is that you can prepare multiple desserts. It’s so nice to have a choice and even better to have leftovers. Let me share some of my favorite Polish desserts for Easter, mazurki, serniki, bakba, other cakes and cookies.
Whatever combination of Polish Easter Desserts you decide to make, I want to wish you and yours a joyous celebration of resurrection and new beginnings.
