    Rick Young's Note:

    This is a traditional Bohemian pastry recipe handed down from my wife's much beloved Bohemian grandmother who took joy in watching her family eat. It seems like it isn't a real family get-together without kolaches and it also seems like there are never enough made. If you don't like prunes, any fruit filling will work very, very well.

      I have not yet made these, but was lucky enough to have them made by my grandmother herself. As kids I think we snuck half a dozen or so before any meal. She always made them with prunes (and we loved them), but they'd be good with any fruit filling. If you've never had a kolache, they're great!
