I got on a kick to search for Czech recipes, because i'm 4th generation czech, mom said something that struck a cord with me, and I started to search, this is AWESOME what I found. My uncle has just begun to make these, the past couple of years, I really like the poppy seed one, I never knew the name of them! I consider this a dessert, as after Christmas, or Thanksgiving meal that's when we usually eat them. He cheats & fills crescent rolls with the fillings, though, he's made the cottage cheese, apricot ones, prune, pecan & poppy seed. I stil haven't found where he buys the poppy seed filling (like an apple pie filling or cherry, in a can)
