Kolachky cookies are a MUST at every get-together in my family, (also Czechs) mother has made them for as long as i can remember...when she became sick with cancer, i took over making them because there is a sightly tedious process to making them, and when you do make them, you're usually making over 250 + cookies at one time (..i come from a family of 14 kids). Our recipe is only slightly different...we add 2 tblspoons of sugar, and 1 tsp. of baking powder, in addition to the recipe here. It's also beneficial to refrigerate the dough overnight, or at least a couple of hours before rolling out. You can also make star-shaped cookies by cutting all corners into the center, placing jelly of choice in the center, and bringing every other corner to the center and pinching together. With my mother, it was always apricot filling, but i've started making a cream cheese filling which has become the new favorite. You cannot have a party offering these cookies and not get asked by a number of the guests for the recipe..they literally melt in your mouth, they are so good!
