Kolaches are a delightful doughy treat of Czech origin. They made their way to Texas back in the day, and can now be found at many bakeries throughout the state. Traditionally, kolaches are made with a slightly sweet, yeasted dough and contain sweet fillings such as poppy seeds, fruit compotes, or cottage cheese. Nowadays, many Texan bakeries make savory versions filled with sausage, eggs, and cheese. I was so excited to find a kolache spot in Brooklyn, owned and run by a Texan, that bakes fresh kolaches from scratch every day! Brooklyn Kolache Co. makes some seriously legit kolaches, and I love that they use seasonal, locally sourced, and organic ingredients. My favorites are the pumpkin, coconut, and spinach & feta! Enjoy yours in the outdoor garden out back!
