Anyone Heard of this Polish Pastry?

I had once heard of a Polish simple desert dough pastry called "Klotski (or Klotschki) Dough.
Although the person whom today I consider an expert in Polish Cuisine, says she's never heard of them.

Thanks & Regards,

MAG3RD.

Kołaczki. Simple pastry filled with fruit or custard in the middle

1 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 package (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
thick jam or canned fruit filling (apricot or prune)

Mix butter and cream cheese until fluffy. Beat in vanilla. Combine flour and salt. Add in fourths to butter mixture, blending well after each addition. Chill dough until easy to handle. Roll dough to 3/8 inch thick on a floured surface. Cut out 2 inch circles or other shapes. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Make a "thumbprint" about 1/4 inch deep in each. Fill with jam. Bake at 350 for 10 to 15 minutes or until slightly browned on edges. makes about 3 1/2 dozen

I'm assuming from the phonetic sound that you are talking about a cream cheese based dough cut in squares, filled with fruit, nut and/or cheese filling, with the dough folded from two opposing corners over the filling, after baking they may be dusted with powdered sugar. These are available in many bakeries, including large supermarket (Giant Eagle) bakeries in Greater Cleveland. We have a large Polish/Polish descent population. I'm just two generations from Ellis Island arrival & LOVE the Polish food I grew up on. Like most any good Polish food, kolatchky are labor intensive to make but you can 'gum drop' them down like potato chips. You should be able to find a recipe in any decent Polish cookbook or on line through a Google search.

Yes, that is of what I speak. Thanks very much.

Although I am liviing in the NYC metro area now, I spent a good amount of my young adulthood in the Chicago area and am somewhat familiar with Polish cuisine.

Probably a bit too intensive for me. I'll leave the cooking to the experts. :-)

Thanks again.
