  1. Cream shortening and sugar together. Stir in salt, hot milk, beaten egg yolks, and flavoring. When lukewarm, add yeast to mixture. Let stand 5 minutes. Add flour, beating well. Knead down into bowl. The dough will be slightly sticky. Let rise 1 hour.
  2. Cut off small balls of dough. Roll into rounds in your hands, and place on greased cookie sheets 2 inches apart. Let rise 15 minutes.
  3. Make a depression into the center of each roll. Fill with fruit preserves.
  4. Bake at 450 degrees F (230 degrees C) until brown. Watch carefully. Cool on wire racks.

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 i...

These were really good! I halved the recipe as there's only 2 of us to eat them, but ended up having a bit of trouble. I needed 3/4c more flour than the recipe called for, though as this is onl...
