Chubaty Fruit Squares – Ukrainian Recipe

We have a lot of super talented bakers in our parish, and they all love to share their favorite recipes.
This is one of those yummy recipes I received, since I really loved this dessert.
I cut down on the original amount of sugar, since the ready made pie filling I used, is quite sweet. 
If you wish to make your own filling, which most likely will be less sweet than this one, you may want to add an extra 1/2 cup of sugar to the dough.  I prefer it just the way I posted it.

Sorrel Borscht (Shchav, Shavel) – Recipe

If you like tangy flavored soups, you will love Sorrel Borscht (Shchav). My first experience with tasting this dish was in a Polish restaurant, while visiting my family in Poland. My husband really liked the slightly tangy taste of this soup, so I have been preparing it during the sorrel growing season. The main ingredient is sorrel, of course, a simple herb but not easily found in a grocery store, but rather in a specialty food shop, or a garden (your own or your friend’s).

You can find a ready made Shchav, in the Kosher section at your favorite grocery store, but it’s taste does not measure up to the fresh, home made version. Once you make it at home, you most likely will never want to buy it pre-made.
