Kolaches (Czechoslovakia)




Prune Filling


  1. Add yeast to milk and let stand several minutes to dissolve. Stir in salt and sugar.
  2. Put butter into a large bowl; add 1 whole egg and 1 egg yolk, beating very hard. Continue adding 1 whole egg and additional yolk, followed each time by hard beating. When all the eggs have been used, mix in yeast and then flour, beating hard. Cover with a towel and place in a warm place until double in size.
  3. Pinch off pieces of dough the size of a large walnut. Place 2 inches apart on a greased baking sheet; cover, and let rise in a warm place for 30 minutes.
  4. Press a hollow in the center of each piece with fingers and fill the cavity with Prune Filling, jam or marmalade. Bake at 350 degrees F for 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from oven. When cool, sprinkle tops generously with sugar.
  5. Prune Filling: When prunes are tender, drain; discard pits and chop prunes coarsely. Stir in sugar, butter, cinnamon and vanilla extract. Add more sugar if desired.
