Kolachkies by Lady Rose

Rose Mary Mogan


The first time I made these flakey and delicate cookies, I thought the recipe had an error in it, since there was no sugar in the recipe. I had never made a cookie without sugar, and where I had lived in Arkansas we had never heard of a Kolachkie, but a coworker shared this recipe with me more than 40 years ago now, and it has been a Family favorite every since. My 8 brothers always refers to it as the PRETTY FOOD THAT TASTE GOOD. It is a simple recipe, and very light buttery and flakey, and we love all flavors. I make them for most of our family gatherings. There are never any complaints.

How to Make Kolachkies by Lady Rose


  • 1Cream butter with cream cheese until light and creamy and well mixed.Gradually add flour and beat until it is real creamy. I beat at least 15 to 20 minutes until the mixture looks like the texture of ice cream.
  • 2Remove from bowl, and chill till dough is really cold. I usually refrigerate it over night and make the next day. I have also placed it in the freezer for a quick cool method. But prefer to let it sit over night in fridge.
  • 3Break off a medium size portion, and roll on floured wax paper. Cut out with a shot glass. Make a thumb print in center and fill with about 1/2 teaspoon of solo filling. Place on buttered cookie sheet or use cooking spray Bake in Preheated 400 degrees oven for 10 to 12 minutes. Please note cookies do not get real brown. Dust immediately with powdered sugar while still warm and again before serving. Remove to cooling rack to cool completely.
  • 4My personal prefrence to make these cookies is to pinch off a small amount of cookie dough, shape into a small ball, roll in floured hands, then press flat between both palms, and then place on greased cookie sheet. Make a thumb print in center of cookie and fill with fruit filling. Just seems easier for me, but which ever method is easier for you.
