    rusted_essence's Note:

    This is another recipe my grandma submitted to the family cookbook she made for us. Her story for this recipe is as follows; "I got this recipe back in the 60s when I moved to Karnes City. I can't remember where I got it. I have used it many times over the years making kolaches and cinnamon rolls. My family always and still does like dessert. They are great to have on hand for thanksgiving or Christmas morning when everyone is hungry and you're busy trying to get the special holiday dinner prepared. The kolaches and cinnamon rolls can be made the day before or several days ahead and frozen. Please try your hand at these, I always loved making these, a little trouble, but you will get compliments. From scratch cooking and baking is a dying art." I have made these repeatedly since I received my cookbook for Christmas. They take a long time but are so rewarding!!! There are a bunch of variations that you can do with this dough, from sausage and cheese to fruit filed or making homemade cinnamon rolls, I will try and share the wealth with you guys.

      This was my first try at making kolaches since I had no idea what they were until recently. Delightful little things. I had no clue how much dough to use per kolache or how to assemble them, how much filling to put, how to close them shut, etc. So the end results ranged from warped ping-pong ball sized to the size of my fist. But I guess we have to start somewhere. I think I'll cut off the excess "tail" next time and maybe use a cookie cutter to be more uniform. The bread itself was really soft and light with a nice crust. Also, I'll be sure to season my filling really well next time. If you don't salt it enough, the flavor gets in all the bread. Thank you for sharing, I'll be making these again.

      These were amazing! I might have spilled a little extra sugar in there, then I added breakfast sausage patties or bacon with Velveeta and jalapeno slices and they are simply amazing! I grew up in Houston, then moved to Ohio and nobody up here has even heard of the word "Kolache," so I came here and found your recipe and....voilla!!!!
      Thanks for having this posted for people like me to see!
