I want to recreate my favorite pastry from childhood, kolache, which is a delectable treat of Czech and Polish extraction. I'm not interested in the savory version. Wonderful ethnic bakeries kept a steady supply of these in our kitchen, but now I live far from these bakeries. The version I want to recreate used a cream cheese-based dough, not a yeast dough. I'll be so appreciative if anyone can help! (Also spelled kolacky)
