This kolacky recipe is a simple Czech cream cheese pastry (pronounced kolotch-key), a very old holiday favorite. Using Solo-brand filling found in the baking aisle is a delicious time-saver. The prune flavor is scrumptious!

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place cream cheese and butter in a large bowl; beat with an electric mixer until smooth and creamy. Beat 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar into butter mixture. Slowly beat in flour; mix well. Cover the bowl and refrigerate for at least 3 hours or overnight.

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  • Roll out chilled dough to 1/8-inch thickness on a well-floured board. Use a pizza wheel to cut dough into 36 (2 1/2-inch) squares.

  • Spoon about 2 teaspoons filling in the center of each square; do not overfill. Fold opposite corners of each square into the middle to encase dough, pinching dough together in center. Filling should peek out a little at each end. Transfer cookies to an ungreased baking sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until set but not brown, about 12 minutes. Remove to racks to cool. Dust cooled kolacky with 1/4 cup powdered sugar.
