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.

[Moved from]: polish filled cookies---Kolaczky???

Does anyone have a recipe for the filled cookies, that are cut like a square and then you put jam on them and fold over the sides.....I think they are polish and not sure of the correct name.

kolachy recipe

I don't ever remember my grandmother making these, but a polish friend made a version of kolachy but did it on a baking sheet and cut it into squares (after baking). Her husband was czech so maybe that is where the variation came from. I had the recipe from her but after a few moves have misplaced it. My family would love for me to make this again. Does this variation sound familiar to anyone? It was a sweet dough topped with fruit and a mxture of butter and icing sugar sprinkled over the top.

We used to have Kolachies all the time for desert after lunch at school. They were soooo good! I loved the icing.

I have seen some recipes with a leavening agent such as baking soda in it. Has anyone tried such? Was wondering what the difference would be? I tried them at New Deluxe Bakery in Hamtramck and didnt care for them, however, went to New PALACE Bakery and loved them!

I really want to make these, they sound delicious. There are so many different types of flour here in Poland, which one should I use please? Also, as StevePolish asks, do I need to add baking powder (is that Proszek do Pieczenia) ? Thanks

My great grandmother's recipe calls for:

1.5 lbs salted butter
1.5 lbs cream cheese
2 C. flour
2 t. baking powder
1 C. powdered sugar

Work butter and cheese. Sift flour, sugar, and baking powder. Blend well with butter and cream cheese mixture. Form into 2 inch thick rolls. Wrap in wax paper. Chill until mixture is firm. Cut roll into 1/4 inch cirlces. Press down center of circles with your thumb and fill with your choice of filling. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.
