DIRECTIONS

  • Prepare 1 batch of Sylvia's Kolache Dough (#238688) per directions through step 9. (Note that I use my countertop mixer with the dough hook rather than mixing by hand and usually need about 6 1/2 cups of flour vs. the 6 that Sylvia calls for).
  • Divide the dough into 12 equal parts.
  • Roll into round balls and then one at a time:
  • Roll out each dough ball into an oval about 8" x 6".
  • Layer 3 slices of deli ham and 1/3 cup of shredded cheddar in the middle of the oval.
  • Bring the long ends up and together on top of the cheese (make sure to wrap it up!). Pinch the dough together to seal.
  • Bring the short ends up and together on top of the 1st layer of dough. Pinch the dough together to seal.
  • With your hands, roll each dough pocket around to smooth the seams and shape into a 4"x3" pocket (about 1 1/2 inches thick).
  • Arrange on a greased baking tray.
  • Brush the tops with melted butter.
  • Bake 20-25 minutes at 400 degrees until done.
  • Eat hot (very!) or allow to cool completely and store in the fridge. (Note: Let the pockets cool before putting them in bags - otherwise the moisture will condense in the plastic bag and make the dough a bit soggy).
