Not too many people know about this yummy delicacy. Kolaches are Czech pastry pinwheels that have your favorite preservative inside. My favorite happens to be cherry, but you can also get apricot, prune, raspberry, and poppy seed. If you google Kolaches you will see mainly two different ways to make these, open faced and pinwheels. The correct and only way to make them is in a pinwheel.
I remember when I was young help my mom and her church make dozens and dozens of these early in the morning for a yearly craft show. Still to this day, church ladies start the ovens and 5 am and go until 2 or 3 pm. The end result is a couple hundred dozens.
If you are ever in the area of Spillville stop at the Mini Mart to get your self some, you will not be disappointed. Or at least get one a try.
