Blueberry-Buttermilk Kolaches

Kolaches are a traditional Czechoslovakian pastry that may be prepared with all sorts of wonderful fillings. They may be shaped large or small to fit a variety of everyday & entertaining needs. The beautiful benefit of this particular recipe is that the fruit filling may be prepared with frozen, fresh blueberries that still deliver undeniable seasonal flavor. Once baked, any remaining Blueberry-Buttermilk Kolaches may be frozen & rewarmed throughout the week for a quick homemade meal. Learn how to make a delicious breakfast pastry your family will love.

When entertaining is in order, smaller pastries may be be prepared. Use this flavor combination, try the Lemon-Cream Cheese Buttermilk Kolaches version or consider a Lemon-Poppy Seed Filling for interest.

1/4 cup warm water
2 tsp active dry yeast
1/2 cup sugar
4 cups bread flour
1 1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 cup softened butter
1 cup room temperature buttermilk
3 eggs, divided
Blueberry-Lemon Jam
2 recipes Lemon Cornmeal Streusel

Stir together the water, the yeast & 2 teaspoons of the sugar. Let stand 5 minutes or until foamy. Whisk together the remaining sugar, the flour, the salt & the nutmeg in the bowl of a stand mixer. Add the butter, the buttermilk, 2 eggs & the yeast mixture. Mix on Low speed 1 minute with a dough hook. The dough will be very sticky. Scrape the side of the bowl with a rubber spatula. Increase the speed to Medium & mix 4 minutes. The dough will not come together in a ball around the hook during the blending process. Sprinkle flour around the bowl sides & transfer the dough to a well floured surface. It will be quite sticky. Press the dough flat & shape it into a ball. Place in a lightly greased bowl. Spray the dough surface with cooking spray & cover the bowl with plastic wrap. Let rise in a draft-free spot for 1 1/2 hours or until doubled in bulk. Press the dough down with your fingers & transfer it to a well floured surface. Roll the dough to a 1/4-inch thickness & cut 3 1/2-inch circles. Place them on parchment paper-lined half sheet pans. Cover loosely with plastic wrap. Repeat until all of the dough has been cut. Allow the dough to rest, as necessary, if it springs back excessively when re rolling the scraps. Cover it with plastic wrap & let stand 5 to 10 minutes. Let the cut dough on the pans rise in a draft free spot for about 1 hour or until an increase by a half their original size has been achieved.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Make an indentation in the center of each piece of dough using your thumb being certain to press all the way to the pan bottom & leaving a 1/2-inch rim around the circumference of the circles. Whisk together the remaining egg & a little cold water then brush it over the dough surface. Pipe 1 tablespoon of the Blueberry-Lemon Jam into each indentation. Top with the Lemon Cornmeal Streusel. Bake, in batches, 15 to 18 minutes or until golden brown around the pastry edges. Cool 30 minutes.

How To Make Blueberry-Buttermilk Kolaches

For visuals on the dough texture during the blending procedure, look to Baking Classics: Kolaches. While the dough is rising, prepare the filling & the topping so they are ready to be used once the indentations are pressed. Brushing the egg mixture over the surface before filling them, makes it so much easier to get that beautiful golden brown color during baking as opposed to completing the task after they have been topped.
