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.
