Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
6 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup sugar
2 packages active dry yeast
grated rind of 1 lemon
1/2 cup warm milk
1 cup butter
6 egg yolks
1 cup sour cream
My Favorite Nut Filling:
2 pounds ground walnuts (8 cups)
1 1/2 cups brown or white sugar
6 egg whites -- beaten just stiff
2 teaspoons vanilla or grated lemon rind
melted butter and warm milk
My Favorite Poppyseed Filling:
1 pound ground poppyseed (4 cups)
1 pound can applesauce
1 1/2 cups sugar or to taste
2 tablespoons melted butter
2 teaspoons grated lemon rind or vanilla extract
For dough - Dissolve yeast in warm milk with 1 tbsp. of the sugar and set aside to bubble. Sift together flour and remaining sugar into a large mixing bowl; cut in butter as for pie crust. Blend together in another bowl, sour cream, lemon rind and egg yolks. Make a well in flour mixture and add yeast mixture and sour cream-egg yolks mixture. Mix with hands to form a ball of dough.
Divide dough into 5 or 6 parts equally. Roll out on a floured surface to a 14x14-inch rectangle. Spread with desired filling, leaving a 1-inch margin at sides of dough, but leave a 2-inch margin at top or final roll finish. Moisten edges with water; roll up tightly and seal seam. Tuck in ends. Place on lightly greased baking sheet, seam-side down. Using a long wooden pick, prick all over roll deeply all the way through. Cover and let rise until doubled in bulk.
Preheat oven to 325 F. and bake for 35 to 40 minutes or nicely browned. Brush with butter upon removing from oven. Cool before removing from pans.
For Fillings - Nut: Mix together nuts, sugar and flavorings. Fold in stiffly beaten egg whites. If mixture is too dry, gradually add enough warm milk for easy spreading consistency. This is enough filling for 6 to 8 kolaches (nut rolls), depending on size of rolled out dough.
Poppyseed - Combine all ingredients and mix thoroughly. Allow mixture to stand several hours or overnight to thicken and blend flavors. This is enough filling for 7 to 8 average size kolaches (nut rolls).
