Kiffles are an Eastern European Pastry of dough rolled paper thin by hand and filled with assorted fillings. A properly made kiffle is an incredibly light, flaky and buttery indulgence-a cross between cookie and pastry. Its origin has been traced back to the Austro-Hungarian empire. It was brought to the Lehigh Valley by Eastern European and Slavic immigrants around the turn of the twentieth century.
We work with local suppliers to source the freshest and most authentic ingredients, and use old-fashioned techniques to ensure the highest quality. Our goal is to make your tastebuds happy!
Come experience how this amazing Hungarian pastry is made.
We lovingly make each kiffle by hand. We begin by preparing our family recipe dough and rolling it into small balls(thousands and thousands).
Then, each ball is rolled into a paper thin disk.
A small dollop of fruit filling is placed on each disk and rolled into a delicious kiffle. Ready for Baking!
Once rolled, the kiffles are placed on a tray and placed in the oven for baking.
After being baked with love, the kiffles are placed in racks to cool.
Last but not least, the kiffles are ready for you to enjoy!
