    I was wondering if anyone had a reliable recipe for the Polish dessert pastry kolacki? It's been a few years since I've had any and wouldn't mind whipping some up for the holidays. thanks!

    Kolaczki....

    There are some recipes that do not require alot of technique or time but this one is pretty much it as far as the real thing.

    This recipe (if this is what you are looking for ?) is the same one I make at home

    is there a cheese or poppyseed variation? I have not had these in a long time. I used to like the raspberry version at the local bakery around chicago that sold them. but i remember other flavors.

    Yes,


    You can make these with just about any jam/preserve. Some use dates, prunes.....


    There are also the Kolaczki's made with sausage or meat filling. I have put a bit of a French twist and made them with a terrine a lapin, cognac, mixed with finely sliced mushrooms and chives, sounds terrible but....mais je l'adore. (home one sunday and experimented).....




    I personally enjoy abricot filling and raspberry too. Using the recipe posted you can vary it to what you like.


    The topping is simple


    1 cup sugar
    ½ cup of flour
    1 tsp cinnamon
    2 tbsp melted butter


    Cheese Filling


    ½ lb cottage cheese
    ½ tsp salt
    1 egg
    ½ cup sugar


    Poppyseed Filling


    1 cup poppyseed , ground
    ¾ cup of milk
    ¼ tsp cinnamon
    pinch of clove
    ½ tsp salt
    1 egg
    ¾ cup sugar
    1 tbsp flour with butter (paste)
    1 tsp vanilla

    So many different ways......
