Who says JELLY donuts are a must-have Chanukah treat?
In my book, these Czech inspired donuts called Kolaches, are the ULTIMATE treat to serve on Chanukah!
Seriously, FORGET jelly donuts…they NEVER really have enough jelly to make it worth the calories, and I find are always a bit disappointing in the pastry department. The truth is, I like a little bit of a more sophisticated treat.
A pastry that is soft and buttery, filled with a sweet center that is there with every bite you take, can you say YUM? These Kolaches are the perfect blend of a donut, sweet roll, & cheese danish….the ULTIMATE Baked Chanukah Treat!
Now I readily admit, they are a bit of a patchke, there are two risings and you need patience, but in its entirety, these kolaches are a very easy recipe to make. AND, if you really love yourself a JELLY donut, because I know I secretly do to, just add a huge dollop of your favorite strawberry jelly on top of these kolaches after they are baked!
A better Chanukah donut I challenge you to find! I also added a BAKED CHANUKAH CINNAMON DONUT recipe, for those of you who are traditionalist and want a NON – FRY option for your Chanukah donut.
Let the Chanukah Donut Binging BEGIN….Happy Chanukah All! Sarah
