My fall version of a simple kolache cookie.
Makes 15 cookies.
about 3 C of finely chopped apple
2 tbsp butter
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
4 heaping tbsp. sugar
1 stick of butter, softened
3 oz. cream cheese softened
1/4 C packed light brown sugar
1 1/4 C all purpose flour
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla
skillet apple filling:
Take off heat.
Preheat oven to 375F*.
Cream the butter and cream cheese. Add brown sugar and cinnamon, mix well.
Add flour 1/4 C at a time, mixing well after each addition.
Roll out on lightly floured surface. Cut with a biscuit cutter or into squares with a knife.
Place on greased cookie sheet. Scoop a tsp. size dollop of apple filling onto the middle of cookie and pinch sides together. Sprinkle with sugar.
Bake for about 10-12 minutes or until golden on edges. Brush with melted butter and let cool.
