Kolaches!


Encased by a sweet bread, the fruit center of these handheld Czech desserts are a special treat for my "wee beasties".   A little help from my bread machine and a jar of jam make these toothsome delights a snap to make.  Your efforts will not go unnoticed, these are wonderful little treats that grownups and children both enjoy.

You will have time to focus your energy on discussing the correct way to spell kolaches.  Is it "kolaces" or "kolaches"?  That's the hot topic in our kitchen today...

Anyway you spell it, they still taste great!  Here's an easy way to make kolaches:

In a bread machine (or by hand) make the sweet dough.  If you are using a bread machine add the ingredients in the order listed and use your dough cycle.  You may need to add a bit of flour in the mixing to get your dough to the right consistency.  It should be formed in a ball shape and be a little sticky, but not stick to your hands.
  • 1 cup warm milk
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 1 package yeast
  • 1/4 cup shortening
  • 3 cups flour
  • 3 Tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt

After the dough has risen, about an 90 minutes, you will need to grease a couple of cookie sheets and your hands.  Form the dough into 2 inch balls and space them on the cookie sheet.

With your fingers, create an indention in the middle of each ball.

Fill the hole with a tablespoon of jelly, jam, pie filling, or prepared fruits.  Our favorite kolache filling is peach jam, but we have used strawberry and cherry pie filling also.  My neighbor even has a special cottage cheese filling that I plan on trying someday soon.

Let rise for a few minutes, and then bake in a 350 degree oven for 12-15 minutes.  Watch them and make sure you don't let them brown too much.  If you desire, brush them with butter right after they come out of the oven.

Enjoy!
