grandmother's recipeI'm more than happy to post my grandmother's recipe for kolaches.
Here are the components (as written)
bread dough, roll out, butter (melt) and spread with 1. cinnamon sugar, raisins (plump), 2. rolled walnuts, sugar, (nutmeg), 3. commercial brand filings e.g poppy seed.
1 3/4 cup scalded milk (part evap) - cool to warm
1-2 pkg dry yeast dissolved in 1/4 cup warm water
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup margarine and/or butter
3 yolks and 1 whole egg
2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. grated lemon rind
6-6 1/2 cups flour - makes very soft dough
Combine all - yeast last - then add flour. Work in by hand, as you knead the gluten will develop and you can scrape the dough from your hand. Cover the pan and let rise only using floured board after rise to roll out for filling. You can get 3 per 8x13 pan or use bread pans to help keep shape. If you put on sookie sheet the dough is so soft it will flatten out more like a coffee cake.
Bake 350 degrees F. about 1 hour - depends on size. (these have the appearance of a jelly roll)
My Grandmother made these at least 2x a week all her life. These proportions are from my Aunt who stood next to my grandmother one day and as grandma put the ingredients in the bowl, my aunt would scoop out and measure.
If it's the recipe for kolacky, sour cream cookies, I have hers also.
If neither fit the bill, I have grandma's slovak-american cook book and I can post a recipe from there.
