Kolache Memories

A colleague saw me in the hall a few days ago and, knowing that I originally hail from Texas, told me that the Smithsonian Folk Life Festival this year features Texas food — including Texas Czech delicacies. That reminded me immediately of what we called "kolaches" when I was growing up: bready pastries with white frosting and a fruit-filled depression on top. I told my comrade about how, on the way to my grandparents' farm, my folks often would stop the car at a roadside market in a tiny town to buy fresh-baked kolaches. We usually ate them up before we got to our destination!
