Ice Cream Kolachkes Recipe
- 2 cups butter, softened
- 1 pint vanilla ice cream, softened
- 4 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 2 cans (12 ounces each) apricot and/or raspberry cake and pastry filling
- 1 to 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar, optional
- In the bowl of a heavy-duty stand mixer, beat butter and ice cream until blended (mixture will appear curdled). Add flour and sugar; mix well. Divide dough into four portions; cover and refrigerate for 2 hours or until easy to handle.
- On a lightly floured surface, roll one portion of dough into a 12–in. x 10–in. rectangle; cut into 2-in. squares. Place a teaspoonful of filling in the center of each square. Overlap two opposite corners of dough over filling; pinch tightly to seal. Place 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Repeat with remaining dough and filling.
- Bake at 350° for 11-14 minutes or until bottoms are lightly browned. Cool for 1 minute before removing from pans to wire racks. Sprinkle with confectioners' sugar if desired. Yield: 10 dozen.
Enjoy this recipe with a sweet white wine such as Moscato or a sweet Riesling.

I remember my mother making something similar, but could never find a recipe until now. These are delicious! My family loved them and I wound up making another double batch a few days after baking the first batch. Definitely a keeper!
These were great right out of the oven. The cookie was flakey and buttery. The only thing I found is that they didn't stay crimped, they came apart as they cooked so I had square cookies in the end. I used my raspberry jam as the filling. They also didn't overnight very well. They were a bit chewing the next day.
This recipe is the one that made me a loyal subscriber to Taste of Home. These were present at every holiday gathering I can remember as a child, and were a family favorite. My Gram always made them with apricot filling. When I was about 10 years old, she told me that she used ice cream to make the dough. After she passed, I searched for this recipe over and over again with no luck (I did not know they were kolachkes). In 2008, My Grandma gifted me a subscription to Taste of Home for Christmas. I was flipping through one of the magazines, and low and behold, there it was! I made them immediately and literally cried when they were the exact cookies that I grew up with! They were my Mom's favorite too. She passed away in 2007. My kids remember these cookies and my Mother's love for them. I am so happy to bring these back to our holidays, and we enjoy them with fond memories.
They were good and fairly simple to make. I had a hard time getting the two corners to stick together. The picture makes them look really puffy and flakey, mine were pretty flat.
This recipe was GREAT! I got it to make a ton! They froze very well so we can pull out some whenever we like! To answer an earlier question 2 cups does equal 1 pint. I rolled the dough out very thin almost the thinness of paper and they came out flaky and pie crust like! YUMMMY!
