APPLE KOLACHES


A sweet yeast pastry form Czech normally stuffed with either sweet of savory filling. It is quite time consuming  to make but  worth your effort.

Adjust the sweetness that please  your palate, all depend on what  type of apple you've used. I like to experiment by adding different flavors to the filling.

This dough won't rise much but you can proceed to bake after rising time, it will puff slightly during baking.

APPLE  KOLACHES
Yield    :   20 kolaches

2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp instant yeast
1/4 cup melted butter
1/2  cup plus 2  tablespoons  warm milk
2 tablespoons  sugar
1/2 tsp salt
melted butter butter for brushing

FILLING

1 1/2 cups finely chopped peeled apples
2-3 tablespoons brown sugar or to taste
1 tablespoon all purpose flour
pinch of salt
2 tsp lemon juice

METHOD

Combine all ingredients except lemon juice in a saucepan. Cook on  medium heat, stirring constantly  until thicken.  Remove from heat, add  lemon juice.   Leave to cool completely.




DIRECTION

Combine flour and instant yeast in a mixing bowl.

In a small bowl, combine milk, butter, sugar and salt.

Add milk mixture to the flour and forms into soft dough.

Turn  dough onto floured surface, knead by hand for 5 minutes.

Place dough into greased and covered bowl, let rise for 1-1.5 hours.

Lightly punch the dough, roll out dough about 1/8 in thick and cut into 1.5-2 in squares.

Place a heaping teaspoonful  of filling in the center,  bring the two opposite corners to the middle, pinch tightly to seal. Place onto baking  pan, brush with melted butter.  Let sit for 45 minutes. Towards the end of rising time, preheat oven @ 185C.

Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden brown. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan  to wire rack.

These look perfect! Too bad I wasn't closer to take a bite! :D I almost made these when I had aome poppy seed filling, but I went with poppy seed pinwheel cookies instead. So good to see it with different fillings!

Kolaches have been on my to do list for quite some time. Your apple filling is a better pick than the cream cheese or prune. This does give me more incentive to try and make them. Your pictures are enticing-delicious pastry post!

I love kolaches - and am always afraid to make them (I am somewhat baking challenged). The apple filling just makes me smile.
