A Kolacky is a pastry that is filled; not a cookie. That being said; these are SO good! There is NO need to add extra flour (like some reviewers have stated, the recipe as written is perfect) however, You MUST use butter in order to get the dough to set up right and you must let it chill overnight. I can't speak for those who used their hands instead of dough hooks, but these were easy to make. A little time consuming but well worth it. The secret is to use powdered sugar instead of flour when rolling it out and to cut all your shapes out 1st before adding your preserves & folding them, that way the dough is still chilled. Roll it thinner than 1/8 inch, because they puff up while cooking. Cut the dough into circles or squares, add the preserves, fold them over, then pinch them closed. ( I cut out both shapes since I made 2 different flavors.) These pastries when made into a turnover look more appealing and aren't messy at all. I cooked them for 20-25 minutes and opted not to roll them in powdered sugar at the end. (they didn't need it) Enjoyed with a cup of hot tea, Yum! I will definitely make these again. Edit: Blueberry was better than strawberry and all pastries were eaten after only 3 days. I will be making more blueberry ones this week!
