Bohemian Pastry

Bohemian Pastry created by Peachy326

This is a recipe that my Mother, Carrie Waters Cox Pazolt made every year. They are similar to kolaches. You can use prepared preserves, marmalade, or kolache filling. A teaspoon of preserves is about right; too much and it runs out of the pastries. Jelly doesn't work well because it runs out, too. You can substitute margarine for butter if you prefer. I like butter myself and have used butter for the vegetable shortening (Crisco) as well with no bad effects - except to my cholesterol... I did not count the overnight chilling time in the preparation time.

  • Cut the flour and salt into the butter and shortening as you would for pie dough.
  • Mix sugar, yeast, milk, egg yolks in a bowl.
  • Add the liquid mixture to the flour/shortening mixture and mix well. Should form a nice ball of dough.
  • Cover the dough ball and refrigerate overnight or at least 5 hours.
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Remove from the refrigerator and roll thin like pie crust.
  • Cut in 3 inch squares.
  • Put preserves in the center and fold each pastry from corner.
  • Use a fork (or your thumb) to seal the edges.
  • Place on a lightly greased cookie sheet (you could also use parchment paper) and bake 20 to 25 minutes in a 375°F degree oven.
  • Dust with powdered sugar, cool to touch, and enjoy. Keeps well in a sealed container. .
