Yesterday, I went to Czech-Moravian picnic. There was Czech food, traditional folk dancing and yummy homemade desserts! This reminded me of a post that I wrote before last Christmas about Kolacky (i.e. Kolache, kolace, kolach, koláče). Kolacky are a Czech cookie filled with fruit, poppyseed or cheese. Many other eastern European countries also make them or something similar. Check out my post to view the recipe…my recipe produces a moist kolacky dough because it uses a handful of ingredients including cream cheese. The best part of kolacky is that they can be filled with any flavor of fruit filling. I think my favorite is when they are filled with apricot.
My family and I usually bake kolacky for the holidays. Kolacky are the perfect dessert after a large feast because they are bite sized. You can always squeeze at least one in! Since there are so many foods to prepare for a holiday dinner, we bake kolacky a couple of weeks in advance and freeze them. They freeze perfect! But, they can’t be stacked in the same container because of the jelly or fruit filling. I had an idea to design trays that fit in air-tight plastic food storage containers….and that is how SweetStackers came about! Using the Stackable Food Storage System, you can layer a whole batch of kolacky or any cookies, bars or pastries in two or three layers, in one typical 3″ container without them sticking together. This makes is possible to place only one container in your refrigerator, freezer or pantry.
Do you make any cookies or bakery that are hard to store in an air-tight container? Please share and link to your recipes!!
