Last weekend was Kolacky Days in Montgomery, MN, where my paternal grandparents were from. We go almost every year for the festival, mostly to see the few remaining family members who live there and to buy kolacky. This year, we missed out on all of the varieties that my husband requested (though we did get the only kind I ever want, which is the best kind: poppyseed), so my dad and I decided to make some of our own using a family recipe.
Now, there are tons of variations, and I’m sure everyone does it differently, so feel free to comment with any suggestions! But here’s the one in our recipe box.
(Pictured is our first attempt at making a maple bacon kolacky, which failed in a sense, but was still delicious.)
