When Sarah was a Peace Corps volunteer in Moldova, her host grandmother taught her how to make them by hand, and Sarah has since taught her parents, sister, and me how to make them. It can take a couple hours to make a large batch to freeze, which leads to great family time and conversation. She has enjoyed being able to share this tradition both in Moldova and the U.S. and loves the fact that our three-year-old son, Charlie, really likes them and requests them regularly for supper.
