The 29th Annual Polski Day celebration will be held Saturday, May 4, at St. Joseph-St. Benedict's Church, at 8th & Vermont, in Kansas City, KS. The traditional Polski Day Parade begins at Noon at 14th & Central, and heads east on Central Avenue to 8th Street going up the wrong way on a one way street to Vermont and ends at the church. Enjoy Polish food, music, and entertainment beginning at Noon. A special Polka mass will be held at 4 p.m. on Saturday at All Saints Church.

Here is a special polish recipe you can make at home to help celebrate the day.


1 cup butter
1/2 cup confectioner's sugar
4 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon Vanilla
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup finely chopped pecans
Sifted Confectioner's Sugar


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream butter, gradually add sugar and vanilla, beating until light and fluffy. Sift together flour and salt; add to cream mixture.

Add more flour if needed, to make dough easy to handle. Add finely chopped pecans. Chill dough at least one hour before using.

Shape dough into 3/4 inch balls and then roll into crescents shapes, place 2 inches apart on greased or lined cookie sheet.

Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until lightly browned. Roll in confectioner's sugar while still warm. Makes 3 dozen.

Store in air tight container for one week or freeze up to six months.
