Would make this again.
People can't believe I made these - many think these cookies are very difficult and best bought at a bakery. I was surprised how easy these were to make. The dough was easy to work with. I did find that thick jams worked better than thin or very clear jams. 5 stars

I last had these cookies in 1969, the last Christmas my mother was alive. When I found the recipe here, I was prepared to enjoy the nostalgia. The cookies themselves were fabulous! I do not think the recipe could be improved, and the procedure is just as it was when I helped my mom make them as a child. I ached to reestablish this link to her, so I thank whoever supplied the recipe. 5 stars

I am 100% Polish and grew up in Chicago, IL. I have had many different kolackys on many different occasions, but these by far have a great taste and the recipe is much simpler than others I've tried....especially those that call for yeast in the dough. I made these for Christmas to all of my Floridian friends' delight, and plan to make them again tonight for a friend's birthday. My husband and I absolutely in love with these cookies!!! 5 stars

I am 100% Irish and I had no idea how to make Kolaczki's. I had non-stop compliments on the cookies! 5 stars

My grandmother use to make these every christmas and when she died a few years ago i thought the recipe died with her. I tried every library and book store looking for this recipe but no luck. When we bought our computer I thought it couldn't hurt to try looking for it one more time. Everybody I gave some to just loved them and want the recipe so I'm telling them where to go to get the recipe. Thank you! 5 stars

I grew up in an all Polish neighborhood in Cleveland, Ohio and I "Know" Authentic Kolaches. These are the "Best" 5 stars

I've made this recipie for years. My Best Friend gave me the recipie when I got married 18 yrs ago. Everyone loves it. I use the solo fillings that you buy at the store. 5 stars

I had my doubts but these are very tasty. Before baking, I sprinkled with granulated sugar and the sweetness was just right for me. I made little squares (cut with zigzap roller -- pretty) and pinched two corners together. Many "exploded" open and I quickly learned to really pinch and mash the corners together to keep them intact. Next time, I'm going to eggwash the outsides before sprinkling with sugar to get a prettier golden color on them and to help the sugar adhere. Lastly, use thick jams. Looser ones (blackberry no seeds) ran too much. 5 stars
