This is a basic recipe for the traditional Czech pastry. They can be made with a variety of fillings, but this one uses your favourite jam. My preference is for a good quality apricot preserve.
Kolaces (or Kolaches) are big where I live due to the large Czech population... Kolaces are perfect for any occasion - my favorite filling is sweetened cream cheese - to DIE for. This is a great basic recipe! - 14 Jul 2008
Just like my grandma used to make! I was trying to find her recipe but was unable to find it since she passed away. Thank you for this recipe. It has brought many happy memories to my family! I used apple, almond, mixed nut, and cherry fillings and then topped it with a basic icing. Very very good! - 14 Jul 2008
These turned out great! I made them with peach, blueberry and apricot preserves. The dough was a little sticky, but a bit of flour on my hands fixed this. They were so delicious! Great recipe. - 14 Jul 2008
