Abe Lincoln

“You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich...strengthen the weak by weakening the strong...bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift...lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer character and courage by taking away people’s initiative and people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves." -Abraham Lincoln

Kolaches by Marie Addison

This recipe is from my Grandmother.  Easy to make and they are so good!  We love to have apricot filling in ours, but you can use any fruit or cheese filling.

4 cups sifted flour
2 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
pinch of mace
2 drops lemon or vanilla extract
1 cup warm milk
1/2 pound butter
1 yeast package
2 beaten eggs

Put butter in milk, melt on low heat.  Put yeast in 1/4 cup warm water.  Mix together dry ingredients and 1/2 cool butter and milk, add yeast rest of milk, beat till dough does not stick to bowl.  Sprinkle with flour (very little), let rise till double in size.  Grease cookie sheet, roll out, make opening, and put filling in.  Let raise,  brush with melted butter, till double in size.  Bake 350 20 - 25 minutes.  Sprinkle with powder sugar just before serving.
