Golden Kolacky Cookies


There are only four ingredients in these Golden Kolacky Cookies and they taste 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. These make for a perfect Christmas cookie.

  1. Being Polish by birth, I remember these as a kid. My grandma made them and so did my mom. One word of caution, lol, 2 dozen of these cookies last about 15 minutes or so!

    • They have been around for decades. They are not only delicious but so elegant looking. A wonderful cookie for a party! I’m happy they brought back memories for you Linda. ❤

      • We had some Hungarian friends who always made them and we often exchanged goodies at Christmas time. My friend Ann Marie made some last year and dropped them off – very tasty and elegant looking.
