TORTE COUNTESS KRASINSKA ( POLISH DESSERT )



Torte Countess Krasinska ( Polish Dessert ) image

This won Best of Show in ethnic foods at the 1990 State Fair of Texas. I'm not really sure what it has to do with Countess Krasinska or what makes it a Polish dessert but a cook in Carrolton, Texas apparently knows something I don't. It appealed to me for an entirely different reason; a chance to use a gadget I picked up, new in the box, at a garage sale. The instructions on said gadget are German but the pictures tell me that this 9" round plastic disk with equally spaced teeth is for punching holes in cake tops. Pretty neat, huh?

OLIVE BITES



Olive Bites image

We used to eat fried olive bites at the State Fair of Texas but they got dropped due to the supplier not supplying them . I came up with my own version to satisfy our craving. Good as is but we like to dip in a creamy Greek dip. These can be made ahead and frozen. Allow to come to room temp approx 30 minutes before frying.
