One thing I miss about living in Provo is all the unique and delicious restaurants. It seems like there’s always something new popping up. I’m sure there are a bunch of places here in Denver, but in Provo, there was a wide variety of places in close proximity. I never got bored with the food there.

A few months ago, we went back to Provo, and I met up with some of my friends one morning. Cortney suggested we get some Kolaches – which I had never heard of. But I’m all about trying new foods, so I picked up a few on our way to her house.

Oh man. I was sold on them after the first bite. Kolaches are a pastry (that originated in Central Europe) filled with meats, fruit, or cheese (or a combination of them all.) I have no idea how authentic they were  at the place we went, but they were so good.

When I saw some of Sister Schubert’s® Dinner Yeast Rolls at Walmart, I knew they’d be the perfect way tool to make semi-homemade and easy kolaches.

One of my favorites was a strawberry cream cheese kolache, so I decided to make one similar to that. However, using the recipe above, you can use any jam that you want (or even just cream cheese.) You could also fill it with sausage, potatoes, etc. The sky is the limit!

While these are a great treat any time of day or year, with Easter coming up, I think it would be a fun addition to add to the table. It’s a bright, flavorful dessert that would go great with an Easter ham and potatoes. You could even pull double duty and buy a big bag of Sister Schubert’s® Dinner Yeast Rolls to go with dinner, and then make these for dessert. They are truly some of the best tasting frozen rolls I’ve ever had! Be sure to check out Sister Schubert’s® Facebook Page for more yummy ways to use them!
