Fruit Kolacky

READY IN: 35mins
Top Review by lucid501

This recipe was good, but a little hard to work with. It makes a TON of dough (I ended up with 100+ cookies) and it was pretty hard to mix and to roll out (very sticky). However, it did make beautiful kolacky, so I would probably make it again. Using fruit preserves was really easy and yummy--we used apricot and blackberry. This is a good recipe, but I think if I make it again I will cut the recipe in half, and maybe it will be easier to work with. Thanks! (Edited to add: We dusted the second round with powdered sugar, and they were even more yummy! Despite the dough issues, I will make these again).
