Kolachkes-claimed by both Poles and Czechs-are round pastries topped with either poppy seeds, nuts, jam, or a mashed fruit mixture. Karen Maderich's heirloom recipe was a first-place winner of Martha Stewart Living Television's Cookie of the Week Contest.

    By experience...I agree with evals that this recipe is tastefull. At same time, my family survived WWII and their recipe used cream cheese. Regardless, thanks Martha for sharing. Annie Koprowski, Boston

    My Bussia came over from Poland and when she made Kolachke's they were a cream cheese dough then filled . These are good but I don't think they are Kolachke's.

    Pretty good. My husband liked them a lot. Tried several different fillings, mostly different flavored yogurts, and they were all good. Would have liked to try a 'cheesecake-type' filling but had no cream cheese, next time though. I think I will also try some almond flavoring in the pastry next time.

    I used a combination of butter & cream cheese, also nonfat Greek yogurt rather than sour cream. I did not get 4 doz, but I made them a little larger than recommended. Still I doubt 4 doz is possible unless you make them truly minis. I will definite try the recipe again, the kolachkes I remember we're squares with 2 sides folded over jam. Think I'll do it that way next time. We alsways drizzled frosting, my grandma came from Poland and that was how she always made them.

    Being Czech I can say this is not traditional Bohemian recepy. As a toping we do not use sugar frosting but mixture of flour, butter and sugar in sort of a dry consistency.

    Do you think you could use Greek yogurt instead of the sour cream?

    I followed the recipe exactly and got about 26 cookies. 4 dozen? Not a chance!

    Do you think that they can be frozen for even a short period of time, say 1 week?
