Only an ASHKENAZI dish. it's not a blanket "Jewish" dish.

First- no one said "blanket". That it is found in thousands of Jewish homes and many Jewish groceries, is enough to call it a staple Jewish dish.
Second, instead of posting a whole sermon- I will simply state: AHAVAT YISRAEL! PERIOD.

Recipe question
Iíve made Kichel last year, with this very recipe EXCEPT mine calls for 1 3/4 cup potato starch. It came out ok. Is mine a typo, is yours a typo, or it doesnít really matter.
