About this recipe: "Kolaczki" - buttery, jam filled pastry is a traditional fave for every Polish Christmas eve.
This recipe is an absolute disaster and mangles a nice, traditional cookie. The dough is all crumbly, and no amount of additional fat can make it pull together. The amount of yeast it calls for is immense - four 1/4 oz. packages!! The dough reeks of yeast, even after baking. A TOTAL waste of time and ingredients. - 19 Dec 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This recipe makes a lot of cookies. I made some apricot and some raspberry. One problem I had was getting mine to stay closed while baking. Perhaps I didn't roll my dough tin enough. I also thought my yeast would never dissolve. But once they baked they were delicious. I would make them again! They were a hit at my pre-schoolers "Polish" celebration. - 15 Dec 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Now one of my favorite cookies! Light and Flaky, sweet and delicious. - 24 Dec 2000 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
