Beigli is a very traditional Hungarian holiday pastry. It is one of my heritage recipes passed down form my great-great Grandmother.
It is always baked for Christmas and Easter. There are different fillings for Beigli.
I will show you what to use and how to create this unique pastry that could also be given a gift to your friends and family to bring warmth to their celebrations.

Breads are another important part of the Hungarian kitchen.
Not many women bake their own bread because they are afraid of it being too complicated.
Nothing could be further from the truth. Try it once and you will never turn back.
There is nothing as tantalizing as the scent of freshly baked home made bread filling the house.

Meringues are very traditional in Hungary. There meringues for kids, meringues created for adults and specialty high end cake shops.
There are also Christmas meringues, with holes in the middle, so they could be hanged as decorations on the Christmas Tree.
There are even Easter and Valentine's Day meringues. Although Hungary only recently adopted Valentine's Day and is fairly new, there are desserts being created every year for the special day. Most people call Valentine's Day , "Lover's Day".
