Grandma's Kolacky Cookies

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by Mareesme

A cookie recipe given to me by my husband's Polish grandma (busia) that I have to double because they fly off the plate -- one recipe for them and one for me! My favorite Solo filling is Apricot, but any are wonderful.The pronounciation is "Kolatchkie", but I've never seen it spelled any other way than Kolacky! (Dough can be refrigerated and cookies frozen after making.)

OK, a long time cook/baker here but I'll admit this recipe baffled me! So few ingredients in the dough...but trust I did the reviews. Well, let me say these are so very light & tender. They are FANDAMNTASTIC! I followed the recipe halving it as there is just me & used Solo Prune filling only problem is I now need to make another batch! These will be a regular around here I can promise you that. Let's see, apricot, prune ,poppyseed.......& the beat goes on. TYSVM
