These highly addicting best selling cookies are an Eastern European tradition that we call a walnut kolachi cookie. They're found on every Wedding Cookie Table, and alongside the apricot cookies and large kolachi nut rolls at every holiday and family gathering. We make our cookies from start to finish, just like Mom and Grandma did. The homemade cream cheese dough is what separates this cookie from the rest. It's made with real butter, and is addicting on it's own without filling. Each cookie is filled with the same walnut filling as our large kolachi nut rolls. To make our filling we grind fresh California grown English walnuts, straight into our mixing bowl. If these cookies are tradition in your family, they should bring back some sweet memories.
There are many variations of recipes and spellings, with one thing in common - great family traditions. You may know these cookies as kolacky, kolaczki, kolachky, or kiffles. Kiffles are a popular term also spelled kifle, kieflie, kiefle, keeflie or kifli and all pronounced “key-flee” or the modern "kif-full". You may also know kifli or similar terms as either a crescent cookie, or crescent yeast dough pastry with or without fillings.
PLEASE NOTE: You may experience 'crumbing' or 'breakage' of kolachi cookies due to shipment. They travel best in cool or mild conditions. This does not affect the quality of the cookies, they are always guaranteed to arrive fresh.
Size: Cookies are made by hand and therefore vary in size & weight, approximately 3" long and 10 oz per box.
