"Vizovice" pastry

The "Vizovice" pastry originated at the beginning of the 20th century, building on an older tradition of decorative Christmas pastry. The dough is made with water, flour and a spoon of vinegar and has to be worked well. Various figures and shapes are either cut out or modelled from the dough and baked. Spices and seeds are usually used to make the eyes of animal and human figures.
