Pécsi mézes kalács / Honey Cookies from Pécs Aktual

Pécsi mézes kalács / Honey Cookies from Pécs Aktual

This recipe is from Polgár Zsuzsa, folk artist from the city of Pécs, Hungary, and we are using it here by her permission.   

Mézes kalács has a long tradition in Hungary.  It was known in Hungary even before the time of King Mátyás (15th century), and over the centuries it slowly  spread throughout  the country.  In 1824, “mézes kalács”  bakers received permission to start a guild.  Zsuzsa presents a video that I recommend  to everyone, even if you don’t understand Hungarian; it is fun.  Click on the word "More" at the end to watch the video.
