Vote on the First Batch

Okay, so they are definitely the best batch I have ever made. However, the bottoms are crunchy and they shouldn't be. We have explored a couple ideas, and we have come to two conclusions:

  1. I buttered the pans to prevent them from sticking. I can't remember if my teacher had or not. We think that the butter might have sort of fried the bottom of the buns. Next batch we are not buttering and hope they don't stick.
  2. The kolaches are supposed to touch when they are completely risen. Now some of our guys did, and others didn't. We think this is because I had them too far spread out on the pan. This time we have made them a little cozier with their neighbors. The next batch is rising so keep your fingers crossed.

    Invest in a silpat you will never have to guess at spraying again.
    You did a great job... :) They look wonderful!!!
    do these freeze well? "Cause there is no way I could eat 6 dz before they got stale.

  2. I didn't even think to use my Silpat!!! Ugh. Ok, next time, in a year from now.

    To answer your question: Yes, they freeze wonderfully. You simply pull them out of the freezer when you are ready and pop them in the oven for a couple of minutes and they are ready to go as if fresh. That is why Jon's grandma usually makes 12 dozen at a time, so they will always have a batch ready at family gatherings.


I don't hate comments! What's cookin'?
