Rolled Nutty Kolache

Rolled Nutty Kolache

(25 servings)    Printable Version
  • For Dough:
  • 1 pint sour cream
  • 1/4 pound butter (1 stick - softened)
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 6 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 packages dry yeast
  • 6 cups flour

  • For Filling:
  • 3 3/4 pounds shelled walnuts
  • 1 lb. jar of honey
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar

Bring sour cream to a slight boil in a large saucepan. Remove from heat and stir in the butter, baking soda, 6 Tbs sugar and salt.

Let this cool until it's warm bathwater temperature. Now mixing in the eggs and the yeast. Slowly stir in the flour.

Let this stand for 15 minutes, then knead and roll to 1/4" thickness.


Finely grind walnuts using a food processor (or a knife and a lot of patience).

Put nuts in a large mixing bowl and add the honey and the 1 and 1/2 cup of sugar. Mix well. Don't be afraid to use your hands. That's the best way.

Filling should stick together when a small amount is squeezed together. This makes 12 - 14 cups of filling, measured loosely; enough for about 15 doz. small nut rolls.


Cut dough into 2 inch squares. Take a square of dough, stretch it to a 2 and 1/2 inch square, and place filling along one side. Begin rolling from filling side, and place seam side down on greased cookie sheet, making three long rows on each pan, with sides lightly touching. Cover with a clean tea towel and let rise in a warm place for at least three hours. Makes 4 pans of 30 to 40 pieces.

Bake at 350 degrees until lightly browned (about 30 minutes -- watch carefully).

Remove immediately to cooling racks and brush with melted butter.

This is a delicious treat for breakfast or tea. Your home will smell just like a hometown bakery.

My grandmother was originally from Czechoslovakia and I remember her making these all the time. The whole family loved them.
