I may drive to NE just for that...

Alright! Off to the Kolache Factory! Going to pick up a few sausage, egg, and cheese, a few potato, egg, and cheese, and probably some pastries.

Leftovers mean I can take some to work for breakfast tomorrow.

Yum. There's a little Polish deli near me. They make pierogis, kolachke, home-made sausage, and other goodies. I love that place.

Poppyseed for the WIN!

Nothing could compare to my Mom's homemade.

Every birthday she used to make me Pork Roast with Dumplings and Gravy and Kolachkes for desert. I felt like a Moravian potentate.

How are the dumplings? Mom makes super-dense sinkers the way my Polish grandma made them. We fight over them. Pork, Sauerkraut and dumplings. My all-time favorite dinner.

I've been craving those for months. There's like two bakeries that I know of that make them
and both are on the other side of hell from here. (If you ever drive in Baton Rouge, you know
what I mean. Worst traffic anywarez)

Y'all must have low standards. I cannot stand the CzechStop . Their stuff isn't very good and the sausage they use just plain sucks. You need to upgrade to
Green's Sausage House where they use real sausage instead of that nasty little wiener that the CzechStop uses.





Sausage ( recommend the jalapeño and cheese )

My Mom's are like boiled bread, very airy.

I remember as a kid my maternal Grandmother taking a weekend to teach her the secrets to making them - if they're handled too roughly as they're being prepared, they collapse and get doughy. The air pockets help them soak up more gravy.

My grandmother made dumplings with raisins and apricots in them - covered them with honey.

Central European cusine is extremely underappreciated.

Yes they are.

Title: Kolachke (Or Kolache)
Yield: 1 Serving

Ingredients

1/2 c milk
1 1/4 st butter; softened (12
-tablespoon
1/2 c sugar
1 ts salt
4 egg yolks
2 pk active dry yeast (or 2
-scant table
1/2 c warm water; (about 105 to
-115 f)
4 1/2 c unbleached all-purpose flour
1 ***apricot or prune
-filling*** (ma
2 c pitted prunes or dried
-apricots
1 c orange juice
1 c water
2 tb sugar
3 ts grated orange rind
2 tb grand marnier
1 (or orange juice)
1 confectioners' sugar for
-dusting

Instructions

Makes about 24 buns.

Claimed by Czechs and Poles, these sweet buns are served with morning and
afternoon coffee. Fillings of prune, apricot, poppy seed, or cottage
cheese are folded into an envelope of dough and baked until golden brown,
then sprinkled with confectioners' sugar.

Scald the milk by bringing it just to a boil, then remove it from the
heat, and add the butter, sugar, and salt. Cool to room temperature and
beat in the egg yolks. Dissolve the yeast in warm water and add to the
milk mixture with 2 cups of the flour. Beat this for 5 minutes, until
smooth. Stir in enough of the remaining flour to make a very soft dough.
Cover the dough with a towel and allow it to rise in a warm place until
double in volume, about 1 hour.

Meanwhile, make the filling. Chop the fruit and mix with the orange juice,
water, and sugar in a medium-sized saucepan over medium-low heat until the
mixture becomes thick, about 15 minutes. Cool, then stir in the orange
rind and liqueur (or orange juice). Pour this into a food processor fitted
with a steel blade and pulse until the fruit is coarsely chopped.

Stir the dough down with a wooden spoon. Turn it out onto a lightly
floured board and knead it with floured hands for several minutes. Divide
the dough in half. Cut each half into 12 pieces. Lightly roll or pat each
piece into a small rectangle and place on a greased baking sheet about 2
inches apart. Place a dollop of filling on each rectangle, then fold each
corner up toward the center to cover the filling, but allow some of it to
peep through. Let these rise about 45 minutes, or until double in size.
Bake in a preheated 350 F oven for 15 minutes, or until golden brown.
Remove from the oven, dust with confectioners' sugar, and serve warm.

This is a pig in blanket. Or a chubbie. Maybe a dumpling if you put fruit in it.

That ain't a kolache. Actually, I don't know what the hell that is.



These are kolache. Just like Grandma made. Prune and cottage cheese are the best.

BTW- I went to Ohio last week and ate at Schmidt's Sausage Haus. Those people have no idea what spicy sausage is. Even the strudel is suspect.

WELL –– WTF is at www.czechstop.net?? There are NO pics of what YOU claim to be a 'kolache'! NEED PICS!

BTW, You are right about Schmidt's: Should be called Der Scheiss Haus. And the only thing 'German' about 'German Village'
in Columbus are a few street names –– Mostly POSERS!

There's a place a few miles from the office that makes the BEST kolaches.... But it's bad because they don't open until 7am. I like getting donuts or kolaches closer to 5 or 6am. If I eat too late, I can't sleep well when I get home.

But damn, them's some good kolaches!
