1-2-3 Easiest Kolachy
Traditional Polish cookie our family makes for Thanksgiving, Christmas & Easter. Family & extended family request this well in advance of the holidays, they remind me of their favorite flavors!
My husband Ron Neinast, use to have me make these cookies for all of his pot lucks and parties at the hospital he worked at. Every year I had to make more than the year before! Last time, was over 500! They were all gone in 40 minutes!

TOPPING OR COATING
*** If making the dough into squares, after adding filling: take two opposite corners of the dough and pinch together forming a little basket with handle before baking. (they are easier to plate and store this way). Or just fold one corner over the opposite corner which makes them look like babies in a blanket.
When cookies are done baking:
Place cookies close together on wax paper. Sift powdered sugar on top. Or use Coarse White Sugar or Sparkling White Sugar (they look like diamonds the way they sparkle. You can buy at some grocery stores, or order online, or go to a bakery supply store.). Let cool. Store in airtight containers in refrigerator.
*** favorite fillings: poppyseed, almond, prune, lemon, cherry, strawberry and blueberry. I also use raspberry jam and apricot jam.
*** you can make 1-1/2 inch to 4 inch cookies (adjust your fillings accordingly).
