Called 1-2-3 Easiest Kolachy because the dough has three ingredients & the numbers are also measurements, easy to remember & make!

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!

How to Make 1-2-3 Easiest Kolachy

Step-by-Step

  1. Pre heat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Mix together the sugar and bisquik in a large bowl.

    Add sour cream and knead together.
  3. Roll out the dough to 1/4 inch thick on a lightly floured surface. Either cut into desired size squares or use a round cutter. Place cut out dough onto an UNGREASED baking sheet. Gently press an indention in the center of each cut out. Put 1/2 to 1 teaspoon filling in each indentation. Bake at 350 degrees for about 7-10 minutes (depending on your oven) or until the bottom of the cookies are a light golden brown.

    *** 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.
  4. ***These cookies can be frozen on baking sheets and then stored in containers with additional powdered sugar and wax paper between each layer. (After thawing completely...just before serving: sift additional powdered sugar over cookies to "refresh" them.

    *** 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).
  5. I usually double the recipe when I want to make a lot of cookies.
  6. when I am done baking, I put any left over fillings into containers or zipper bags and refrigerate or freeze.

Eggplant is very underrated. If eaten raw, it’s bitter. But once it’s baked or fried, eggplant has a mild taste with a creamy texture. It’s the perfect base for a recipe because it takes on the flavor of other ingredients. A great option for a vegetarian dinner, eggplant can be used in many different ways. […]

Fresh Corn Recipes That Make Tasty Side Dishes


We’re not all lucky enough to have fields to grow fresh corn, but thankfully it’s abundant at the market. And while zucchini is one of the most popular summer veggies (even though it’s technically a fruit), I really think corn on the cob ranks at the top. I look forward to enjoying it each summer. […]
