"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." — AMYSUE1

3 7/8 cups
active dry yeast
1 (12 ounce) can
cherry pie filling

Made 2 batches of this today and they turned out perfectly!! I substituted baby cereal (the dry flaky kind) for the potato flakes....the baby cereal is better nutrition-wise so thought I would try it since it has the same consistency as instant potatoes. The kolaches turned out light and wonderful! The dough was beautiful, and very easy to work with, too. Served them to 24 people and they were asking for seconds!!! No problem w/my filling running out -- with kolaches you need to make a deep indentation, and do not fill them completely full. Used apricot preserves as the filling, and made a struesel topping to sprinkle over the preserves. I think I will start using this recipe instead of my old kolache one. Great recipe!!
I used my KitchenAid mixer with the dough hook to mix. Turned out great.
SO GOOD! My husbands absolute favorite. Instead of buying the pie filling I made my own: 2 cups of frozen blueberries 1/4 cup white sugar 1/2 cup water 1-2 tbls cornstarch bring to a boil and simmer until thick.......YUM!
These are my first Kolache and they turned out just like my grandmas from Czech Republic. I made poppyseed and apple filling. Just before I put the filling on the dough I brushed the edge with some egg yolk and oil mix. That made them golden brown and still soft.
Update: I have made this recipe so many times as dinner rolls this summer. My family absolutely loves them. We call them 'kolache' dinner rolls because originally the recipe was for kolaches, LOL. My bread machine broke in July and I even made them by hand the other day. Original review: I was a little disappointed in the actual kolaches that I made with this recipe---the dough had a weird consistency and I found it very hard to work with. My family wasn't too impressed with the kolaches and I had leftover dough. I let it rise some more, then I made it into dinner rolls. Now, those were GREAT!!! Even my husband, who is not a bread eater, thought they were great. So 4 stars for the kolaches and 5 stars for the surprise dinner rolls! Thanks for the great idea!
Excellent - we add a sausage & cheese rather than a filling before the final rise and they are incredible.
This is a very good, simple recipe. I made a batch Saturday and they were gone before I knew it and on Sunday I had requests to make a 2nd batch. I followed the dough recipe exactly, but I did not use the fruit filling. I wrapped the dough around cocktail sausages and cheese. I found that sliced chz works better than grated. It melts better is much easier to work with. I wrapped a third of a chz slice around the suausge and then wraped dough around it. Make sure that you seal the dough well so that the chz does not melt out. I think next weekend I will make them with the fruit filling.
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 and 1 Tbsp. oil instead of extra egg yolk. Delicious! Drizzled with icing. Thankyou!!!!!
