Jam Kolaches

A community recipe by

Though kolaches are pastries made with a yeast dough, these jam-tart cookies use a short-crust pastry and are a cinch to make. Honest! Not too sweet, the cookies get their sugar from the jam and the light dusting of confectioner's sugar. Excellent with a cup of black tea, on a snowy afternoon, or anytime at all.


Serves: 6

  • ½ cup softened unsalted butter
  • 13 ounces softened cream cheese
  • 1¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup strawberry jam
  • ¼ cup sifted confectioners' sugar
