This recipe was given to me by my mother-in-law, who received it from her mother! It was a standard treat in their family, made nearly every week. Now I make this dish for my own family for special occasions.

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, dissolve yeast and 1 tablespoon sugar in warm milk; let stand 10 minutes. In large bowl, combine 2 cups flour, remaining sugar, egg yolks, salt, butter and yeast/milk mixture. Mix until smooth. Add enough remaining flour to make a stiff dough.
  2. Turn out onto a floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Add additional flour, if necessary. Place dough in greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover; let rise in a warm place until doubled in bulk, about 1 hour.
  3. Punch dough down and allow to rise again. Roll out on floured surface to 1/2-in. thickness. Cut with large glass or 2-1/2-in. cutter. Place on greased baking sheets; let rise until doubled, about 45 minutes.
  4. Firmly press indentation in center and fill each roll with a heaping tablespoon of filling. Brush dough with egg white. Bake at 350° for 10-15 minutes or until rolls are light golden brown. Yield: about 28 rolls.

MY REVIEW

"My Grandma was a full-blooded Bohemian and she used to make kolaches when I was little. Unfortunately, I didn't get her recipe, but I was thinking of her the other day and wanted to give my kids a taste of our heritage. They turned out great! The bread is so soft, sweet, and golden in color. I used canned apricot and poppyseed filling, as well as a homemade cream cheese filling. I liked them all, but my kids' favorite was the cream cheese with apricot second. They didn't like the poppyseed. I think my grandma also used to make prune and cottage cheese fillings."
