These are the pastries that are made by the hundreds for the annual Tabor Czech Days in Tabor, SD every year. Everyone has their own "family" recipe, but this is the standard recipe that most of the ladies use. I learned to make these when I was small from my Czech grandmother. This recipe will make about 8 dozen kolache and they freeze well.
Apple Strudel with puff pastry. Made this and it was wonderful. Used the recipe for just one...so if making two, I would suggest doubling the filling. Drizzled a glaze consisting of a mix of icing sugar, butter and lemon juice on the top.
