Notes

Coming from a Czech family, kolaches have been our staple at every family gathering. Grandma Helen always made the best. This is her recipe - though I'll be honest, I baked kolaches with her one day, and she never used a measuring cup once - a dash of this, a handful of that. "You just know," she'd tell me.
