I must chime in on this one. My Grandma Muras made kolache all the
time. It was a staple for the family. It was a great break snack after
being in the field all day. She also made what looked like a kolache
pie. Same idea in a 9" pan.
If you are in the Sealy area, the Farmhouse Bakery is run by a Czech
and she make the real homemade kolache. Learned it from her
grandmother and opened a shop to make the real thing...
