Kolaches Recipe

Kolaches Recipe

Gently sweet tender pastry-like bread topped with creamy cheese filling and fruit jams, I always love these lovely Kolaches for their soft texture with the combination of velvety cheese filling and the fragrant fruit jam. Every Czech household has their own recipe for Kolaches and it varies. As a Kolache lover, here is my Kolaches recipe. (Even though I am not a Czech descendant)

What is Kolaches?

If you have traveled to Czech republic, you will see the lovely pastries named Kolaches (koláče) in many local bakeries. Kolaches are pastry-like soft sweet bread filled with cheese and fruit jams.  The traditional flavors include poppy seed, prune, and farmer’s cheese. These pastries are traced back to Eastern Europe origin. In late 1800’s many of Czech immigrants settled in Texas, Nebrasaka, and other Midwest area of U.S. Eventually the traditional Czech Kolaches expands their filling to pineapple, blueberry, peach, cream cheese, and etc – flavors that are available in this country.
