This recipe is from a friend who used to own a kolache bakery in a town near here with a large Czech community.

Village Bakery at West Apricot Kolaches

1 pkg yeast
1/4 cup warm water
3/4 cup milk
1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp salt
3 3/4 to 4 1/4 cups flour
2 eggs

Dissolve yeast in 1/3 cup water.

Warm milk, butter & sugar together until butter melts. Cool to lukewarm.

Add to 3 3/4 cup flour and salt. Add eggs. Beat in. Add just enough additional flour to form soft dough. Put in greased bowl and cover. Let rise 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Punch & divide in two.

Rest 10 minutes

Shape each half into 9 balls. Put 3" apart on greased sheet and flatten to
3" circles. Rise 45 minutes, covered. Make depression, fill with heaping tablespoon filling. Bake at 375 for 12 - 15 minutes.

Apricot Filling

2 cups coarse snipped dried apricots.

Cover with water by 1 inch. Simmer 10 minutes, then drain. Stir in 1/3 cup
sugar, 1 tablespoon butter & 1/2 tsp. nutmeg.
