Cream Cheese Filled Kolache

If you’ve been wondering what happens when you put potato flakes in your kolache dough, here’s the answer! This might be my favorite kolache recipe yet, or maybe it’s a tie with the Sour Cream Kolache. The sour cream version has a little bit of extra flavor, while the potato dough has a more doughnut-like […]

Soft Kolache

Growing up, I was always amused at how my grandmother called margarine “oleo”; so as I was looking through old Texas Czech kolache recipes that called for “oleo”, I couldn’t help but think of my grandparents and how happy they’d be to try these fresh, homemade kolaches. I also started thinking about the formulation of […]

Kolaches With Sour Cream

After spending the weekend making kolache recipes back-to-back, I still feel like I haven’t even scratched the surface of what’s out there. I tried a version made with shortening and evaporated milk (okay, but nothing special), another with 1 cup of mashed potatoes (very good, but kind of dense) and finally this one, which is […]

Cream Cheese Filled Kolaches

We Gotcha Kolache!

by on April 10, 2007 · 10 comments


When making the three hour drive from Austin to Houston, it’s customary to take a rest-stop in the town of La Grange, specifically Weikel’s, a gas station and bakery known for their kolache. Back when my grandparents had a second home in La Grange, we’d pick up a batch for them and share them at […]
