Czech Kolaches


Adult Enrichment -
Winter/Spring 2023

Laurel Severson

Kolaches are one of Czechoslovakia's national pastries. Immigrants brought their passion (and recipes) for kolaches to the Midwest as early as the 1860’s. Kolaches are marvelous egg-rich, slightly sweet yeast dough. Traditionally filled with fruit mixtures, such as apricot, cottage cheese, poppy seed or prune; they can be shaped into small rounds, square “tied packages”, or filled turnovers. We will make variations in class and taste samples. Plan to take home an assortment to share with family, friends or to freeze. You will also leave with many recipes, tips and techniques to master these Old World delicacies. Better than the bakery!

Plan to pay the instructor a $15 supply fee the day of class. Bring your own containers to bring home your pastries.
