Kolache Kookies

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Chicagoland Chef du

This is a heavier version of a family holiday favorite. I have been making these since the early '80s, when thanks to a patient, "T", brought them in to the staff. Five simple ingredients, you can't go wrong! I should add that this raw cookie dough does not taste good at all so don't be tempted to sneak it.

These came out good. They were a little plain for my taste. I might add cinnamon to the dough next time. Also, I baked them for 17 minutes to get them browned on the bottom and firm. Thanks for sharing.
