Kolacky (or Kolache) is a type of Polish pastry that holds a dollop of fruit rimmed by a puffy pillow of supple dough. Originating as a semisweet wedding dessert from Central Europe, they have become popular in parts of the United States.
4 ½ cups all purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
2 cups of butter
1 ½ teaspoons white sugar
½ pint sour cream
Fruit jam of your choice (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
Combine the flour, baking powder, butter or margarine, sugar, sour cream and eggs.
Knead until dough is smooth.
Sprinkle a work surface generously with confectioners' sugar. Roll dough out over the confectioners' sugar to 1/4 inch thick, adding more as needed. Cut out into 3 inch squares and fill with nut, poppyseed, prune or jelly/jam filling.
Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 15 minutes. Enjoy!
