I just made this recipe and the cookies turned out great. The kolaches I remember as a kid were the round ones that were more like sweet rolls, but a friend wanted this kind. I tripled the recipe so the ratio was one 8-ounce cream cheese, 3 sticks of butter (1 1/2 cups) and 3 cups of flour. I mixed the butter and cream cheese in my Kitchenaid mixer really well, added a tsp. of vanilla, and then added the flour and mixed on slow just until combined. I divided the dough up into four small disks and refrigerated for a couple of hours. It was easy to roll out the small amount quickly before it got too sticky. I rolled them out on a sheet of parchment paper dusted with powdered sugar and a little bit of regular sugar. Once they were cut I added the filling, then lifted each square off the paper using a long carving knife under two diagonal corners of the square so I could pinch the other corners together. I used Solo apricot and poppy seed and made my own cream cheese filling. All of them turned out fantastic!
