Golden Kolacky Cookies

Merry Christmas! I had time to bake one last cookie. There is only four ingredients in these Golden Kolacky Cookies and they tasted like they came from a bakery! This recipe doesn’t make a lot and the fruit preserves add a nice variety to my cookie tray. What is fascinating about this recipe is that there isn’t any added granulated sugar in the recipe. The sugar is only in the form of the fruit preserves.

  1. About how long does the dough need to be in the fridge? I know it might be different for everyone but what’s the average time? Also, a family member makes these but brushes them with egg whites before putting in the oven, have you ever made these cookies and brushed them with egg whites ?

    • Hi Cindy! I left mine in for about 20 minutes. I wrapped them and placed them directly on the cold shelf and they got good and cold. No I have never used egg whites on them but it wouldn’t hurt to do so. I personally would have rather drizzled them with icing…lol I have a big sweet tooth!
