Cherry Kolaches

Ingredients

  • 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 2-1/2 cups warm 2% milk (110° to 115°)
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 4 eggs
  • 11 to 11-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • FILLING:
  • 2 cans (21 ounces each) cherry pie filling
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons cold water
  • TOPPING:
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • Melted butter

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the milk, sugar, butter, salt, eggs and 5 cups flour; beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a very soft dough. Do not knead. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 75 minutes.
  • 2. Turn onto a well-floured surface. Shape into 1-1/2-in. balls. Place 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 45 minutes.
  • 3. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine pie filling and sugar. Combine cornstarch and cold water until smooth; gradually stir into filling. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Cook and stir for 1 minute or until thickened; set aside.
  • 4. In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar and egg yolk until smooth. Using the end of a wooden spoon handle, make an indentation in the center of each dough ball; fill with 2 rounded teaspoons of filling. Make a small indentation in center of filling; add 1 teaspoon topping.
  • 5. Bake at 400° for 10-15 minutes or until lightly browned. Brush melted butter over rolls. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool. Refrigerate leftovers.
