How to make it

  • Melt the shortening.
  • Heat the milk to scalding then let cool to lukewarm
  • add the melted shortening, sugar and salt to the milk.
  • Beat the eggs well
  • Disolve the yeast in 1/4 cup of luke warm milk or water.
  • Add the eggs and disolved yeast to the liquid mixture.
  • Stir the flour into the mixture slowly to make a soft dough.
  • Turn out onto a floured board and knead till smooth.
  • Place in a greased bowl.
  • Cover bowl with a damp towel and let rise till doubled in size in a warm place.
  • Shape into small balls and flatten on a greased sheet.
  • Let these rise until light.
  • Punch the dough down in the center and fill each depression with jelly, or any thickened sweetened fruit (such as prunes, cherries, apricots, etc)
  • Bake in 375° oven ( I am guessing here as the directions say hot oven and 375 is the temp I use) until lightly browned approx 15 minutes
  • Remove from oven and make a powdered sugar frosting of powdered sugar and a little milk and drizzle over the kolaches.
  • the number this makes depends on how large you make the kolaches.

    My husband is Czech and although I have never attempted to make these myself. Real Kolaches are great. I have also had them with cream cheese which are really good too.
