Hussaren Krapfen


My second favorite cookie from Grandma, Roslyn Freiberg.  These are not only pretty, but they’re delicious.



˝ lb butter, room temperature

4 egg yolks

1 cup sugar

2-2/3 cups flour

Grated rind of 1 lemon

One or two kinds of the best tart jam or jelly (raspberry, cherry, apricot, etc.)


Preheat oven to 325 degrees.


Mix ingredients together with electric mixer.  Shape in to small balls and poke a deep indentation in to the center with your finger.


Bake at 325 degrees for 10 minutes or “until done.”  Transfer to wire cooling rack.


When cool, using small spoon, fill the center of each cookie with tart jam or jelly.
