Apricot Kolaches

Rating: 4.14 stars
Kolaches are a Czech recipe that are traditionally made with a yeast dough and fruit filling. In this version a non-yeasted dough is used. Variations include: cottage cheese, prune and apricot. All are somewhat sweet and can be drizzled with a light powder sugar/milk frosting, but traditionally kolaches are not frosted. I hope this is what you were looking for !! If ever in Oklahoma, check out the Czech Festival in Yukon, OK. The ladies of the community make about 2000 plus dozen Kolaches for sale during the festivities !!!

Spicy bar cookies with a nice crunch of pecans plus the sweetness of a jam filling.

My father and grandparents were born in Czechoslovakia. I use to watch my grandmother make these small pastries at Christmas time and I couldn't wait to eat them when she was all done. I do hope you will enjoy this recipe as much as I do. You will need a large area to work.

Beehive Cookies (Czech Traditional Vceli Uly)

Rating: 3.33 stars
These traditional Czech no-bake filled cookies are usually made around Christmastime. They're made with a wooden or plastic beehive mold, but it's possible to use a walnut shell as well. Coat them with ganache, powdered sugar, or cocoa. To enhance the flavor, make the cookies two or three days in advance.
