Personal Notes:
I remember Grandma Tvardzik working this dough and lovingly assembling a cross on the top. She was magical with pastry. After it was baked, she would add the bread plus a sampling of her Easter meal to her "Easter Basket" and take it to the church to be blessed with holy water from the Priest.

I miss that amazing woman!
