This is my Jam [Kolaches]
Virtual Advent Calendar:
All the singing yesterday
led me to having a sore throat today.
I think I took my rockstar career a wee bit too seriously
after I began my professional vocal chord warm-up yesterday.
I literally sang my way through the day.
I can’t help it though!
It brought me back to the good ol’ days of high school “Glee Club.”
((Can you imagine me as a singing and dancing fool? haha.
Oh wait, don’t answer that!))
So I got carried away.
But this is the time of year where it is completely permitted, right?
That’s what I thought!
So put your tap shoes and sequined vest on
and join me as we jazz our hands and sing–
“The 12 Days of Christmas [Cookies]“:
What the hell are Kolaches anyway?
This was my question to Brooke when she initially sent me the recipes for the cookies.
She told me to trust her and that they were a little slice of heaven.
The woman could not be any closer to the truth!
(I just made up that word, clearly)
I quickly contacted Brooke after I made these, shouting off the rooftop that:
“Kolaches are my newest favorite cookie!”
And they should be yours too.
Here is a visual instructional guide for you:
These cookies are just the right size too:
They fit into the palm of your hand or stows away nicely in your pocket.
I love the way Brooke’s Kolaches came out!
Her’s have a better shape than what I got from using the top of a jar for the round cutter.
I just love how they have a little point at each end, wouldn’t you agree?
