We love Texas kolaches as much for their soft pastry as for the variety of sweet fillings. Click here for a strawberry kolache recipe.
Apricot Kolache Filling

Yield: makes 16 Kolaches
4 oz. dried apricots, finely chopped

Combine the apricots and 3⁄4 cup water in a 2-qt. saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the water is evaporated and apricots are plump.

Spoon about 1 tbsp. filling into each kolache before baking.
