“This recipe is from the Red, White & Blue Ribbon 2004 Cookbook. It's a collection of recipes from contests and food festivals. There are some real winners in this book. This is one of them.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. For the dough:.
  2. Heat the sour cream over low heat until it is warm. Stir in the sugar, salt, and margarine; transfer to a bowl and cool.
  3. Sprinkle the yeast over warm water; let it stand until the yeast is dissolved, then add to the sour cream mixture. Add the eggs and flour and mix well. Put the dough in a greased bowl; cover and refrigerate overnight.
  4. For the topping:.
  5. Combine the cream cheese, egg yolk, sugar and vanilla until smooth. Stir in the strawberries. Refrigerate overnight.
  6. The next day, form the dough into 36 balls, and place them on a greased baking sheet, leaving room for them to double in size. Flatten each to about 1/2" height, and let rise for about 10 minutes. Make indentations in the dough with your finger. Put a little strawberry topping in each indentation. Let them rise until double in size (time will vary according to conditions).
  7. Preheat oven to 350 degrees, brush the tops of the dough around the filling with melted butter, and bake kolaches for about 10 - 12 minutes, or until golden brown.
