I obtained this recipe while I was in high school, from one of my classmates named Marjia Sitar, a recent immigrant from Yugoslavia, which is now Bosnia.
These are an easy, excellent, light pastry.
Guna - Satva
- 1 cup white flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 lb butter or margerine, softened
- 1/2 cup orange juice
- Jam, jelly, or preserves of your choice
- Mix flour and baking powder
- "Cut" the butter or margerine in with the flour, until the mixture has formed little "balls"
- Add enough of the orange juice to make into a rollable dough
- Roll out onto floured surface. It must be rolled VERY thin. You should be able to see to read through the rolled dough.
- Cut into 1 inch squares.
- Dab about 1/2 tsp of the jelly or jam into the center of each of these.
- Fold 2 opposite corners together, leaving the other two opposite corners open, as a "cradle". Dab a little water onto this "seam".
- Place on lightly-oiled cookie sheet.
- Bake for 8 minutes at 350 degrees F, until very light golden brown.
- Remove to plate to cool.
Yield: About 40-50 pastries
Note: If the kolachskys break open during baking, the dough is too thick. It must be rolled thinner.
