Bake time 15 mins
Yield Makes 3 1/2 dozen
Four-ingredient gems with a flavorful burst of strawberry jam tucked inside, these little treats are the big attraction at the annual Kolache Festival. This Caldwell, Texas, event is more than 20 years old and is hosted by proud descendants of early Czechoslovakian immigrants to Central Texas.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 1 (3-oz.) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • Strawberry jam (about 1/2 cup)

How to Make It

  1. Beat butter and cream cheese at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy. Add fl our to butter mixture, beating well.

  2. Roll dough to 1/8-inch thickness on a lightly floured surface; cut with a 2 1/2-inch round cookie cutter. Place on lightly greased baking sheets. Spoon 1/4 tsp. jam on each cookie. Fold opposite sides to center, slightly overlapping edges; press down lightly on centers.

  3. Bake at 375° for 15 minutes. Remove to wire racks to cool.
