Peanut Clusters & Kolachkies Dessert Tray

Rose Mary Mogan


All three of the desserts on this tray are in my SELF PUBLISHED cookbook OF 795 RECIPES, but I can only fit 2 of the recipes on one page. I will add the Chocolate chip cookie recipe in a separate recipe page. Both recipes are so easy and very tasty. There is never any left, after the party, or if there are, they ask to take some home, I am very happy to share. The peanut clusters are so easy to make, I often package in small zip lock bags and store in the freezer. The Kolachkies are very flakey, and all but melt in your mouth when you bite into one. They are awesome in flavor & taste.

  1. PEANUT CLUSTERS:Melt almond bark & chips in microwave until smooth. Start with 3 minutes, then stir, if more time is needed, do in 30 second increments. Cool for 10 minutes. Stir in peanuts.
  2. Drop by tablespoons into baking cups, or use aluminum foil on a large sheet tray. Refrigerate until firm, about 45 minutes. Makes 9 to 10 dozen pieces. MAY ALSO CUT RECIPE IN HALF.
  3. KOLACHKIES: Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Cream butter with cream cheese till thourgly mixed, and then add flour. Mix well till texture is creamy and smooth. Chill well or over night.
  4. Roll out on floured wax paper; cut out with shot glass. Make thumb print in center and fill with solo filling. Use flavor of your choice. Bake in preheated 400 degree oven for 10 minutes. Dust immediately with powdered sugar, and dust again before serving.
  5. NOTE: There is NO SUGAR in this recipe. The first time I made this recipe, I thought it was a mistake, because at the time I had never made a cookie without sugar. That was more than 35 years ago. I have been making & enjoying this recipe ever since with friends and family.
