Kolacky or Kolache (also spelled kolace, kolach, or from the Czech and Slovak plural koláče, sg. koláč) is a type of pastry that holds a dollop of fruit rimmed by a puffy pillow of supple dough. Originating as a semisweet wedding dessert from Central Europe, they have become popular in several parts of the United States. The dough is rather easy to make, it consisting of cream cheese, flower and butter. As a filling, different types of jams are usually being used. In the United States, kolaches are often served for breakfast, stuffed with sausage, cheese, and jalapeños. Several cities in the world including Prague, Oklahoma, Caldwell, East Bernard, Texas and other big cities hold annual Kolacky Festival celebrations. Montgomery, Minnesota, claims to be the "Kolacky capital of the world" and holds an annual festival known as Kolacky Days. Also other communities in the United States hold Czech-American festivals, where Kolacky are very popular. In Central European countries, as well as in the Czech or Polish communities from all over the world, Kolacky constitute a very popular dish to be served during Easter holidays.
