"This is a family favorite made easy. Preparing the dough in a bread machine saves time kneading the dough by hand. My grandmother used to make these when we would visit. Now I can make them for her."

Excellent - we add a sausage & cheese rather than a filling before the final rise and they are incredible.

MMMM! I made these and the menfolk devoured them in a day and half. Used 1/2 can of cherry filling for the whole batch as I didn't want as much filling in the pastry. I used 2 T. cream cheese ...

I've never had kolaches before so I didn't really know what to expect. The dough was really amazing and I had no trouble with the filling spilling out. My family thought they tasted like un-fr...

These were wonderful and so easy. I followed the bread recipe exactly and they were even better than the kolaches that we go to the donut store for. I'm looking forward to making them again soon.
