READY IN: 52mins
YIELD: 3 dozen




  • For the dough:.
  • Heat the sour cream over low heat until it is warm. Stir in the sugar, salt, and margarine; transfer to a bowl and cool.
  • Sprinkle the yeast over warm water; let it stand until the yeast is dissolved, then add to the sour cream mixture. Add the eggs and flour and mix well. Put the dough in a greased bowl; cover and refrigerate overnight.
  • For the topping:.
  • Combine the cream cheese, egg yolk, sugar and vanilla until smooth. Stir in the strawberries. Refrigerate overnight.
  • The next day, form the dough into 36 balls, and place them on a greased baking sheet, leaving room for them to double in size. Flatten each to about 1/2" height, and let rise for about 10 minutes. Make indentations in the dough with your finger. Put a little strawberry topping in each indentation. Let them rise until double in size (time will vary according to conditions).
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees, brush the tops of the dough around the filling with melted butter, and bake kolaches for about 10 - 12 minutes, or until golden brown.
