Need recipe for kolache

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)

I think King Arthur Flour's website has the best recipe. It has variations for fruit filling & sausage.

Lisa Fain at Homesick Texan has a recipe as well:

Sorry my bad, you wanted cream cheese not yeast dough.

Well here's one with the cream cheese dough:

Here's one with the yeast dough. I haven't tried it but it looks very tasty:
