My husband had requested cherry kolache for his birthday breakfast, and this looked like the best option.
This is an excellent recipe for kolach. My daughter said that they were the best she's ever had. We live in a town with a lot of Czech heritage, so that means something. I ended up using 5 and 3/4 cups of flour, because the dough was so moist, but they were still extremely light and tender
To prevent burning, I baked them on an insulated cookie sheet. That worked very well.
I also followed the idea of another poster, and turned a dozen of them into "breakfast" kolach, with finely chopped onion, kielbasa, eggs and 2% sharp cheddar loosely scrambled. The loose, moist scramble set firm in the kolach baking process.
This recipe's a keeper.
Sorry. These were like biscuits with jelly in the middle. Not at all like the kolaches we were looking for. The kolaches we have had are more like a roll or donut dough. Followed the recipe exactly as written. Will try another recipe.
I left out the lemon and made savory sausage\cheese kolaches...this made 30, and my family is RAVING! Fluffy bread, even 3 days later in the microwave! INCREDIBLE!!!!!!! A+++++++++ 5*'s
My husband is from a Czech background. He's says these are pretty darn close to how grandma used to make them. I guess that's a great rating!
I grew up in Texas near a little town called Snook and twice a month on Saturday morning we drove there to the bakery with the best kolaches and sausage rolls. I now live in Florida and get homesick for those tasty treats, the picture looks just like the ones I remember and the recipe was right on. I did not have any lemon when I made my second batch, so I used vanilla in it's place it was still wonderful. I am going to use the dough next weekend for the sausage rolls. Do you have a recipe for the cream cheese filling?
Excellent! I was a little hesitant about the lemon extract but did it anyway and was pleasantly surprised. It added a fresh little bit of citrus to a perfectly sweet dough. Thanks so much!
This was a very easy recipe, but as tasty as the kolaches my mom used to make. I experimented with fillings and decided that this recipe does best with a savory filling. I also tried All Fruit instead of preserves (didn't work out) and cream cheese danish filling (which was delicious).
This is a great recipe and easy to make. I made some for my co-workers and they loved it. The lemon is the key to this recipe.
