READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by twissis

This recipe is being entered for ZWT II & my source is Funny the things you can find after so many yrs of loving & craving Czech kolaches. I was raised on them, but this kolache variation sounds wonderful to me & is so easy to make. This may well become my NEW favorite kolache! (Yield depends on size of tart made & has been "roughly estimated". Time does not include time to chill the dough.)

Grabbed and Tagged for 1-2-3 hit wonders game. These were very delish and easy to make. I was really impressed. I couldn't taste the cottage cheese but I think it helped in binding the dough. It's definitely a keeper! Nice with a cup of coffee. So glad I picked this one. Thanks for sharing!! :chef: ~V
