Total TimePrep: 45 min. + rising Bake: 10 min. + cooling
These were very good with the cherry filling. I would suggest whisking the icing ingredients together; using a fork left lumps in mine that then clogged the decorating tip over and over and over. My husband liked them with more icing than I did. Also, when left out overnight our icing and filling wept, but they still tasted great!
These were absolutely delicious!
I just pulled a batch of these out of the oven and boy, do they smell good! I made the prune filling and it's really delicious, although the recipe makes way too much (that's okay, though -- I'll save it and mix it into oatmeal and other things). I am disappointed that the recipe didn't mention the 3 T butter, but now I know, I will just add that part next time.Oh, and while it did take a tiny bit longer for them to rise (even when made with quick-rise yeast), I find that using a heating pad underneath the bowl and cookie sheets helps a lot.
Took these to a birthday brunch and there was much discussion on who would get to take the leftovers home. Raising time is longer than noted and didn't brush them with butter, but they still tasted great. Will definitely make them again.
Make sure that the dough has risen sufficiently in a warm place before proceeding to the next step. The first rising may take up to 2 hours and will make for a lighter and tender kolache. Also let the kolaches cool for a while or completely cool them before drizzling on glaze. Hope this information will be helpful. Carol Houdek
The melted butter is to be brushed on the tops of the kolaches after they have been removed from the oven. Sorry that this was omitted from the recipe. Carol Houdek
not my grandmothers - but still ok. The recipe does not tell you when to add the 3 tbsp butter, melted.
