Hungarian Cottage Cheese Biscuits
Food columnist Amy Jo Ehman says she first tried these flaky biscuits at the home of Faye and Ted Kiss in Saskatoon. Ted grew up in Hungary and escaped after the Communist crackdown on the October Revolution in 1956. His Canadian wife Faye has become an excellent cook of Hungarian foods like these yummy biscuits.
In 1921, there were 8,900 Hungarians living in Saskatchewan. By the census of 2006, there were 27,400 people claiming Hungarian descent. That's a lot of paprika, red peppers and poppy seeds. The early arrivals came on the promise of free farmland and freedom from oppressive landlords. In the 1950s, they came seeking freedom from Communism.
