Spring still means the gathering of certain special ones - you know who you are - to prepare the special Easter foods  - including the making of the delicate little crisp cookies you may know as  "Rosettes" - they are called "Rosetki" or in our community - "Krustiki"  ( literally "little crusts") and were part of the Polish ethnic skillset I enjoyed from my Mother's people as  a girl. 

Full story and cookie recipe - if it appeals, they can be purchased at Amazon where they are called "Swedish" - they are not - they are Polish but till Pope John Paul II, that often happened.

A woman symbol - so strong and yet delicate  - working with irons and very hot oil to win the lacy result!  The iron forms shown are passed down through generations and treasured  - mine.  Ask for details for art quality print or imprinted merchandise featuring this image.
