4 (.25 ounce) packages
active dry yeast
any flavor fruit jam
confectioners' sugar for decoration
This recipe makes a lot of cookies. I made some apricot and some raspberry.
One problem I had was getting mine to stay closed while baking. Perhaps I didn't roll my dough tin enough. I also thought my yeast would never dissolve. But once they baked they were delicious. I would make them again! They were a hit at my pre-schoolers "Polish" celebration.
This recipe is an absolute disaster and mangles a nice, traditional cookie. The dough is all crumbly, and no amount of additional fat can make it pull together. The amount of yeast it calls for is immense - four 1/4 oz. packages!! The dough reeks of yeast, even after baking. A TOTAL waste of time and ingredients.
Now one of my favorite cookies! Light and Flaky, sweet and delicious.
I think this is a great recipe-I've used it twice! Although I think the 24 servings is a bit off; I easily ended up with close to 40. I think the trick is to just roll out a little dough at a time and leave the rest in the fridge. And use plenty of confectioners sugar! Also, make sure the dough is very thin. If it's too thick it will not cook right. My favorite fillings are lemon curd, blueberry and raspberry.
Great Kolaczki's, brought me back to my grandma's house 20 years ago.
Great, unique cookie. Fun to make, balances out the enormous amount of sugary cookies around the holidays.
These are Wonderful
This recipe was as much fun to make as it was to make. It takes time and patience. However, with a family like mine hanging on to their ethnic routes, this was a nice touch for Christmas. I struggled with them a bit, and while them mau not have been ready to present at a bake-off I received great reviews. A good cookie to be served with tea and nice conversation.
