Oy Vey! another Recipe! This time it is Kolacky!

    This is Grandma Terry's Kolacky (Can be spelled many ways: Kolache, Kolach or kolace) recipe.  These can be made with many different fillings.  My family likes apricot, prune and passion fruit/mango.  Nut and poppyseed filling are also quite popular.  You can use any commecial filling, jelly, preserves, jam or make your own from scratch.  When you make these, you must imagine Gram Terry yelling, "Roll them thinner!  Here let me do that!" or they simply won't taste as good.
