From the recipe in the Progressive Farmer, I developed a "novice's version" of the recipe for those who are just starting to make kolaches.

Recipe Ingredients for Kolache

1 1/4 teaspoon sugar
2/5 packages of yeast
1 3/8 tablespoons warm water (105 - 115 degrees)
3 1/5 ounces milk
1 fluid ounces shortening
2/5 teaspoons salt
2/5 Egg yolks
1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
160 g flour, sifted
2 2/5 tablespoons melted butter

Recipe Directions for Kolache

  1. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon sugar over the yeast and dissolve in lukewarm water. Set aside to rise.

  2. Heat the milk in a small saucepan; add the shortening to dissolve. Allow to cool to lukewarm; then add salt, slightly-beaten egg yolks,
and sugar. Combine milk-egg mixture and yeast mixture. Add flour gradually and
work dough by hand or with a mixer until glossy. Keep it a little sticky, if at all possible.
Cover, place in a warm, draft-free place, and let rise until double
in bulk, about 45 minutes to an hour.

  3. After the dough has risen, punch down the dough, and lightly knead. Divide into egg-sized portions with a spoon and form balls. Place in
well-oiled baking pans about an inch apart and butter well; half
margarine may be substituted, but some butter is essential for the
flavor.



  4. Let rise (about 15 minutes), then make indentions in the dough balls
for the fruit filling. Fill each indention with a large teaspoon full
of fruit filling. Butter each kolache well. Over the fruit filling, generously sprinkle
the Popsika.



  5. Place pans of kolache in a warm, draft free place, and allow to
double in bulk again, about 45 minutes to one hour.



  6. Place in an oven preheated to 375 degrees. Bake until golden brown, 20 to 40 minutes.
Remove the kolaches from the oven and slather with melted butter.
Cool slightly, remove from pans, and cool on wire racks. Recipe makes 
3 to 4 dozen.
