Who's got a sweet tooth?

Yesterday it was bread, today it's cookies and little cakes. Some may look familiar to you, and rightly so, since half of these aren't typical Serbian fare. The reason? They're made by a Serbian man and his "Serbian-but-born-and-raised-in-the-US" wife, who brought her favorite American recipes along with her. In addition to the tiny cream puffs, known as 'princes krofne' (PRIN-cess KROF-nay) here, some chestnut cream cookies, and fig cookies stuffed with walnuts, you'll find an assortment of doughnuts, muffins, and chocolate chip cookies to tide US expats through a bout of culinary nostalgia.

They really look good!!! Some of them look like some typical cookies of southern Italy. Good shot.

My steroids are wearing off. I am getting a headache and cramps in my stomach and now I am hungry. Why do people post food for me to see in the mornings. I couldn't sleep last night and went to bed at 11:30 and was back up at 1:45 in my office trying to get caught up.

I really like your good looking assortment of sweets. I had two chocolate chip cookies when I got up and boy were they good.

Hang in there. Life is short and there is always another picnic down the road.

Cookies to us Brits are buscuits, although cookie is growing in use.
Whatever the name they do look quite sumptious along with a strong black coffee.
