Kolaczki Polish Cookies



  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • ½ teaspoon almond extract
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups flour
  • Jam
  • powdered sugar


  1. Cream together butter, cream cheese, and almond extract.
  2. Mix together salt and flour, then add to the bowl with the mixer on low speed until just combined. Do not overmix.
  3. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and flatten into a rectangle. Refrigerate for at least an hour.
  4. Preheat your oven to 350°F and line your baking sheet with parchment. Sprinkle powdered sugar on your pastry mat or very clean counter.
  5. Working quickly, cut the chilled dough in half and place one half on your pastry mat/counter and the other back in the refrigerator. 
  6. Roll the dough out to 1⁄4 inch thick then cut your dough into 2 ½ inch squares.
  7. Place each square onto a baking sheet and add ½ tsp of jam into the centers of the pastry then carefully spread the jam out.
  8. Cross one corner of the pastry square over the jam filling. Rub a small drop of water on the corner of the pastry square and then seal the cookie by overlapping with the opposite pastry square corner. 
  9. Bake for 10 to 20 minutes or until the edges are golden. Allow the cookies to cool for 5 minutes before transferring them to a wire cooling rack.
  10. Dust with powdered sugar.
