These pastries came to Texas by way of Czech immigrants. And while most Texans will call one of these a KOLACHE (Kol-ah-chee), Czech Texans will be quick to point out that this name refers to the sweet pastry, filled with fruit jellies. While the sausage variety is technically called a Klobasnek. The donut shops still list these as Kolaches, and if you order a Sausage Kolache, this is exactly what you will get

How to make:

  1. Make the dough: this recipe involves yeast, so it will need time to proof and rise. Place the dough in a draft free place to double in size before moving on to the next step.
  2. Separate the dough and press out to the size of the sausages being used.
  3. Roll the sausage. Then place on the baking sheet making sure to leave space between the rolls. Let these rise again before baking.
  4. Brush with an egg wash before baking to help give a golden, flavorful crust on the top.
