I loved it.. My grandmother (babka) used to make these, but she omitted the raisins and used a single pitted cherry instead.. DELICIOUS!

Its very rare that I give something 5 stars, but this one deserves it. I had lots of cottage cheese to use so I made one batch and that was eaten up so i decided to make another- will make again and again and again, also good to put jam on top if you run out of topping.

this recipe is awesome, but time consuming. there was some leftover dough, so i pureed blueberries and blackberries and made them into a filling. delicious!i had some cottage cheese about to go bad, so this recipe was the perfect way to use it. these have become a fast favorite in my house

LOVE this kolache recipe. My husband grew up with his great-grandmother who was full Czech, and he said that these were the closest that he'd ever had! Thank you so much for sharing! I can tell that I'll be making these often!

The dough turned out great and was tasty. I elected to make different toppings (a blueberry and farmer cheese as well as an apricot) The first batch burned badly on the bottom at this high of temperature. The second batch at 405 was slightly burnt in 10 minutes. I saw other comparable recipes that recommended cooking at 375 for 15 minutes. Think I'll try that next time. I ruined two double batches with this high temperature

Not as good as Texas Kolaches but definitely delicious! I tried adding strawberry jelly and more flour to the filling for variety and it was good!
