SWEET KOLACHE

Photobucket

Kolache is a pastry of Czech and Slovak,  made of  semi sweet yeast dough top with sweet or savory filling. Most commonly used are apricot, cream cheese, prune,  poppyseed., nuts or even sausages.

This is my eggless version of kolache but nevertheless it is so addictive, everyone who tried them asking for seconds. Be careful  not  to stuff too much jam/preserve if not it will create a  mess when baking. The size is up to you, it can be bigger piece of 4 x 4 in square.

These are also great for party or picnic, more fun if you thread them on skewer to be served  to your guest.

SWEET KOLACHE

2 C all purpose flour
2 TB  sugar
5 TB  melted butter
1 tsp rapid rise yeast
3/4 tsp salt
1/2  C  plus 2 TB  warm milk
1/4 C fruit preserve/jam
extra butter for brushing



METHOD

Place milk, sugar and yeast in a mixing bowl. Stir well. mix in flour, salt and melted butter by cupful, forms into soft dough. Add 1-2 tablespoons of water if it is too dry. Knead by hand for 5 minutes, place dough into oiled and covered bowl. Let rise for 1 1/2 - 2 hours. Roll out dough about 1/8 in thickness, cut into 2 x 2 in square. Place a teaspoon of  jam/ preserve,  bring the corners  to the center.  Lightly press so it sticks well. Let rise again for 30 minutes. Preheat oven @ 190 C. Bake for 15 minutes until golden brown. Brush with butter. Cool on rack. You can also thread on skewer if you want. Enjoy!
