Homemade Kolaches: Warm risen dough filled with cream cheese or fruit



2 cups milk

2/3 cup sugar

2/3 cup margarine

3 pkg. dry active yeast

1 cup warm water (not to exceed 110 degrees F.)

1 tsp. sugar

2 tsp. salt

2 eggs, beaten

7 1/2 to 8 cups All-Purpose flour

2/3 cup margarine, melted

Cream Cheese filling

Two 8-ounce pkgs. cream cheese, softened

1/2 cup sugar

1 tsp. lemon zest

1 tbsp. vanilla

2 egg yolks


In a small pot, combine milk, sugar and margarine. Warm over medium heat until margarine is melted. Do not boil. Set aside to cool. Warn the water to 110 degrees. Add one teaspoon of sugar and the packets of yeast; stir to combine, then set aside to proof for five minutes. Mix the cooled milk (110 degrees) with the foamy yeast. Combine with the eggs. Slowly add in flour and salt until you get a soft dough. Cover with plastic wrap and let stand for one hour or until it doubles in size. Portion the dough onto prepared baking sheets. Brush with additional margarine. Let set for 10 minutes to rise. Cream together all of the ingredients for the filling and set aside. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Use your fingers to create a well, then add the filling. Sprinkle with sugar and brush with butter. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until brown. Brush with margarine when they come out of the oven. Serve warm.

Prep time: 2 hours
