Daring Bakers September 2014 Challenge - Kolaches

The September Daring Bakers’ challenge was brought to us by Lucie from ChezLucie. She challenged us to make a true Czech treat – Kolaches!

We had a choice of three different recipes (details can be found here) and I decided to make the Chodské koláče (Kolache from Chodsko) because I love quark and poppyseed. 

The recipe for the dough worked great - nice silky and soft texture. I'm not sure the poppyseed filling was optimal - it wasn't as homogenous as I expected it to be. And since I didn't have a good piping bag my patterns turned out a bit rough :-) But the taste was excellent!

Thanks for a fun challenge, Lucie!

  3. Great job on the challenge. Your kolaches look so delicious. Thanks you baked with me last month.
