In "Faithful Journeys," a Tapestry of Faith program
Tell that children that kolacky, a Hungarian cookie, could well have been offered to the Unitarian Universalists from Massachusetts when they came to visit Bettje's church in Transylvania.
Have all children wash their hands or use sanitizer immediately before they handle the dough.
Distribute waxed paper and rolling pins at work tables. Give each child a piece of dough about the size of a small walnut. Help them shape their dough into a ball, place it between the sheets of waxed paper, and roll it until quite thin (1/8"). Place rolled cookies on a baking sheet, and put a small dollop of jam or pie filling in the center. Pinch two sides together to make an "envelope" for the filling. When a baking sheet is full, bake cookies at 350 F for 7 to 8 minutes. If desired, sprinkle with confectioner's sugar while warm. Let cool before eating.
Ask your director of religious education and children's parents about allergies and food restrictions. Some children may be unable to handle the dough (vegans or those with dairy allergies), fill the cookies (those with allergies to certain preserved fruits), or eat the cookies.
