First, and most importantly, the Kolacki will turn out much better if you play Polka music while baking. I believe that the Polka King, Li’l Wally’s Polish music will do just fine while baking Kolacki >>> “Nasza Marysia” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g_A33jkJ_lc&list=PLDIRSSaay240ahN3vPsWrMByo-pu-neLF&index=6
1 lb. Flour
1 lb. Butter
1 lb. Cream Cheese
We use 1 to 1 ½ lb. of Lekvar Apricot Jelly and Prune Jelly, but any thick fruit preserves will do fine.
Have ingredients at room temperature. Mix Flour, Cream Cheese and Butter by hand into 4 dough balls and refrigerate overnight. Next day roll each dough ball to a thickness of about 1/8 inch using Confectioner Sugar instead of Flour to sprinkle on the dough balls and the dough board while rolling out the dough. Cut the rolled out dough into squares of about 3 inches and place about 1 teaspoon of filling in the center of each square. Bring up two opposite corners together at the center and pinch together tightly to seal or use toothpicks to hold the corners together. Place the Kolacki 1 inch apart on a lightly greased cookie sheet and bake at 375 for 15 to 20 min. or until slightly browned.
Be warned, Kolacki is highly addictive and should only be made for holidays and special occasions.
