1/6 Photos of Grandpa's Hungarian Kolacky
bug @<'s Note:
These cookies are SO light and SO YUMMY! This is my late grandfather's recipe; his favorite cookies to make for us, and my favorite to eat! Not sure if the spelling is completely correct; but he came straight from Hungary so I guess he'd know. :) Prep time does not include chill time. Yield is an estimate. (The jellies/pastry fillings used in this recipe can be found in cans in the baking isle of most grocery stores. I recommend using the "SOLO" brand.)
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Combine butter and cream cheese completely, add flour and mix well.
- 2Divide dough into 4 balls; wrap each in plastic wrap and chill 24 hours.
- 3Roll out each ball (on floured surface) to 1/8". (Be sure to keep them thin, as this keeps them "light!")
- 4Cut out silver-dollar sized cookies; place on ungreased cookie sheets.
- 5Drop 1/2 teaspoon jelly in center of each cookie and bake at 350* for 7-8 min. (Just until edges begin to brown.) I always bake the cookies flat; however, the edges may be pinched or rolled together as well!
- 6Lightly sift powdered sugar over cookies and serve.
