My mom and gram used to bake these all the time. I remember it being so delicious and probably me and my brothers favorite because of the variety of preserves that they used in it. I didn't know that they were called Slovakian Kolacky.
Mom and Gram used to call it "Jammie Cookies"! Thanks for the memories, Mom and Gram! Love you!!!
