Those look yummy! I had never even heard of kolaches until we moved to Texas a few months ago, (is it a mid-west thing?) so this recipe will be fun to try. I just discovered your blog and have enjoyed reading through your posts.

Delish. I love kolaches but rarely make them. I find the dough hard to get the light texture/ Congratulations on your success. Clarice
