Cranberry Kolache


Also known as "kolacky," these traditional rolls have non-traditional cranberry orange filling.

-- Serves
SKILL LEVEL 24 rolls
4-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 (2-1/4 tsp.) envelope Fleischmann's® Quick Rise Yeast
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup milk
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup butter OR margarine
1 egg
Apple-Cranberry Filling
1 cup coarsely shredded cooking apple
1 cup whole cranberry sauce
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Orange Glaze
1 cup powdered sugar, sifted
1-2 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon orange extract

Combine 1-1/2 cups flour, sugar, undissolved yeast and salt in a large bowl. Heat milk, water and butter until very warm (120º to 130ºF). Gradually add to dry ingredients. Beat 2 minutes at medium speed of electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally. Add egg and 1 cup flour; beat 2 minutes on high speed. Stir in remaining flour to make a soft dough. Cover; let rest 10 minutes.

Stir dough down; roll on well-floured surface to 1/2-inch thickness. Cut with 2-1/2-inch biscuit cutter; place on greased baking sheets. Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 1 hour. Make deep indentation in center of rolls; leaving a 1/2-inch border. Fill with Apple-Cranberry Filling.

Bake at 350ºF for 20 minutes or until done. Remove from sheets; cool on wire racks. Drizzle with orange glaze.

Apple-Cranberry Filling: Combine shredded apple, cranberry sauce and cinnamon. Stir until well blended.

Orange Glaze: In a bowl, combine powdered sugar, 1 to 2 tablespoons milk, and orange extract. Stir until smooth.
