This is a traditional
Slovak Christmas Eve dish.
You will need: 2 pounds
of flour, 1/2 cup of sugar, one tablespoon of salt, vanilla, 1/2 cup of
butter or margarine, one table spoon of oil, 2 eggs, 4-5 tablespoons of
dry yeast. Mix all dry ingredients, add butter or margarine, oil, eggs,
mix well together and let rise. Roll out the dough to about a thickness of
an inch, cut into stripes, roll the stripes into sticks of about 1/2 to
3/4 inch. Cut into one inch pieces and place on a well greased baking
sheet. Bake until golden.
You can make Bobalky few
days before the Christmas Eve. Prior to serving place the Bobalky in a
bowl. Bring about a quart of water to a boil and pour it over Bobalky.
Drain the water. Separate Bobalky into two bowls. Usually one is covered
with a mixture of ground poppy seeds with sugar and the other is covered
with fried sauerkraut over butter.
