Raspberry White Chocolate Kolache

kolache-1-for-blog
When I first heard of Kolache I thought, “Say whatey?” A few weeks ago I had never even heard of this yummy treat, but since joining the fun of the Clickin Moms 3rd Annual Scavenger Hunt, I’ve been introduced to a new favorite. Also spelled Kolacky, this Czech treat is a type of pastry that holds a dollop of fruit rimmed by a puffy pillow of supple dough.

I’ve been slowly but surely making my way through the scavenger hunt list, and I thought that this item was a perfect way to kill two birds with one stone.  My poor blog has been a bit neglected of late, I’ve been entrenched in the scavenger hunt you know – and my family is starting to think I’m a tad crazy with the lengths I will go to cross something off my list .Smile

So while making these pastries did cross an item off my list, it also allowed me to share this deliciousness with you too.  These were definitely VERY tasty. I filled mine with raspberry jam and white chocolate chips, but there are so many other possibilities too.  PB&J and lemon curd are two that come to mind…hmmm…I may have to try that next.  Well, I’m off – I’ve got a list to get through before the 31st. Wish me luck!
