Uh, Susan? If you divide the kolache batter into 36 (as the recipe suggests), and don't let the dough over-rise, you don't get giant bread balls. This recipe worked out really nicely for me. I added a little butter and powdered milk to the filling to make it more like Chinese cream cheese bread, and it turned out great.

I made the same recipe and they turned out like drop biscuits but they were eatable and soft.

I made the cream cheese kolaches and they turned out like giant bread balls. I kid you not. Needless to say, I wasted a lot of time, money and ingredients. I don't think that laurynlynch knows the meaning of a kolachy. They are certainly not giant bread balls!
