ISO Kolac recipes

Anyone making Kolaci for Christmas? I'd appreciate some recipes for the various versions of this pastry.

My grandmother from Romania used to make them, and they were heavenly!
Wish I had her recipe.
Here's a few pages I found, and a recipe of something similar...

Authentic Hungarian Kalachki

Sweet Kolache Recipe Recipe | Recipezaar

Here's a variation someone sent me...

Rugelach/Kolachki
> Dough:
> 1/2 lb butter, softened
> 8 oz cream cheese, softened
> 2 c all-purpose flour
>
> Cream butter and cream cheese together then beat in flour a little at a
> time. Knead dough lightly, if necessary, to incorporate all flour.
> Divide dough into 4 portions, wrap in wax paper and refrigerate for at
> least one hour (or up to a week).
>
> When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350. Roll out dough into a circle
> about 1/16 inch thick. Cut the dough into 16 pie shaped wedges, if
> sticky, dust with a little flour. Spread each wedge with filling of
> choice (be quite sparing) and roll up from the wedge to the point. Place
> on ungreased cookie sheet and sprinkle with granulated sugar (the natural
> coarser grained sugar works well here). Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until
> golden.
>
> Date/Nut Filling
> 1/2 c sugar
> 1/2 c chopped dates (or prunes)
> 1 t cinnamon
> 1 c finely chopped nuts
> (note: could add apple to this one, maybe c and increase sugar a bit or
> add apple & cranberry)
>
> Poppyseed Filling – straight out of the can.
>
> Walnut Filling - b Walnuts, finely ground,1 Egg, 1c Sugar, Water –
> enough to make a paste
>
> Jam Filling
> 1 c ground nuts
> 1 c jam
> (I have used apricot and almond, strawberry and almond, boysenberry and
> walnut, etc.)
>

I've heard of 'kolachke' and many spellings, but have never made it - will have to give it a try, they sound so good!!

Many of us wish we had our Grandmothers' recipes. That's why I started this thread.

So I finally got brave and tried making some Kolache...
from scratch, which means this is also my first attempt
as an adult at baking without a box!

They are pretty good if I say so myself.
Apricot and prune filling.

Merry Christmas, all!

In the version I'm familiar with the filling can't be seen (it's inside the rolled up dough). Thanks for sharing.
Merry Christmas

Well, heck bill! I got a recipe sent to me just like that, but it wasn't what I wanted,
so I deleted it. Will try to get it back and send it to you.
Happy hollydayz! ;)
