I just have 1 special request - Please bring them back to their original size even if you have to charge slightly more. It's understandable during these challenging economic times.
While the savory knishes sounded good, we settled on the blueberry one.
It's got some hefty to it and I'm curious to know what is all in the filling. It has the tartness and creaminess of cream cheese which is probably one of the ingredients along with farmers cheese.
It's decadent and something I'm going to savor slowly. The "crust" is very thin similar to a crepe.
Definitely give this place a try and continue to support this local business. I'll be back for more!
