Vosi Hnizda (Beehive cookies)

This is as common Christmas cookies in the Czech Republic and very yummy !

Hive ingredients
1 1/4 cups crushed roundvanilla wafers or 1 1/4 cups round toddler vanilla wafers
25 whole round vanilla wafers
1 1/4 cups powdered sugar
7 tablespoons soft room temp butter
2 tablespoons rum
2 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons cocoa (Hershey's pure baking cocoa)

3/4 cup powdered sugar
5 1/2 tablespoons soft room temp butter
1 egg yolk, from a pasteurized egg (or immerse an unpasteurized egg in boiling water for 1 minute, cool immediately)
2 tablespoons rum

Set the 25 whole vanilla wafers aside.
Crush enough vanilla wafers, in a medium sized bowl, to make 1 1/4 cups of a rough"flour".
Add powdered sugar, butter, rum, water, and cocoa.
Mix ingredients.
In a small bowl mix filling ingredients together.
Dust the inside of the bee hive form with powdered sugar, then press in a small ball of dough.
Make a hole in the dough with your finger or end of a wooden spoon.
Add enough filling to the hole, with a spoon, to fill the cavity.
Carefully tap the hive out of the form and set it atop a whole vanilla wafer.
You must experiment to find out how much powdered sugar one needs to dust the form with, so that the hive slips out easily.
If you have no bee hive form, use an empty chamber from a grocery store cardboard egg carton.
Store in a cool place, remembering you have raw egg in the filling.

  1. The ingredients in these cookies sound delicious. I've never seen a beehive form. It would be interesting to know if any of the ladies here in the U.S. have them.

  2. Yes, dear Wanita, very delicious ... in my family is most desirable :)


  3. Dear Wanita, maybe you will find ( on internet ? )


  4. I always decorate with chocolate frosting
