   which is served during Purim by Hungarian Jews. You can shape them like
   Hamentashen if you wish; but they traditionally resemble little children
   wrapped in blankets, thus the Yiddish name, Kindli. The recipe is from The
   Jewish Holiday Kitchen by Joan Nathan.
       Place the flour in a large bowl and make a well in the center. Put the
   whole eggs plus 1 egg yolk into the  center and blend with your fingers.
   Add the softened  butter or margarine and knead together. Dissolve the
   yeast in the warm water and then add to the potatoes. The warm potatoes
   will help to activate the yeast.
       Puree the potatoes and add to the flour mixture. Add the sugar, salt,
   vanilla, lemon rind, and enough wine  to bind the ingredients together.
   Knead well until a  hard, smooth dough is achieved. Divide into round balls
   and let stand, covered, while you make the filling, about 45 minutes.
   Preheat oven to 325 degrees  F. When the filling is ready, punch the dough
   and  divide each ball of dough again into 6 or 7 round balls. Roll the
   dough out and cut circles 3 in. in diameter. Put 1 1/2 T. filling in a line
   down the  center, leaving a 1/2  in. border. Fold the top and bottom of the
   circle over to cover the ends of the filling. Then take the left side and
   fold over 2/3 of  the dough to cover the line of filling. Fold the right
   side over to the left edge. Press the sides together at the center and
   edges, as if you were tucking a baby into his blanket. Place on an
   ungreased cookie sheet.  Brush with remaining 2 egg yolks. To make a large
   kindli, take one of the original 6 balls and roll out the dough about 7 in.
   in diameter. Smear with the filling. Fold the top and bottom over into 1
   in.  flaps. Then roll from one side like a jelly roll.
       Pinch down the edges. Brush with the egg yolks and place on an
   ungreased cookie sheet. Bake about 30-45 minutes (depending upon the size
   of the kindli), until golden brown. Halfway through cooking, it is a good
   idea to brush more egg yolk on the kindli to achieve a lovely glazed
   effect. Makes 6 large or 36 small  kindli.
      POPPY SEED FILLING: Combine the sugar and  water and simmer while
   stirring over a low heat. Grind  the poppy seeds in a food processor or
   blender. Add to  sugar mixture. Add egg whites, vanilla, rinds and juices,
   rum, raisins, figs, and cinnamon. Simmer for about 5 minutes. Add the jam
   and butter, and simmer  until the butter is melted and all ingredients are
   combined. For firmer filling, place in refrigerator for a few minutes.
      NUT FILLING: Combine all the above  ingredients and mix well. FROM:
