Blueberry Kolache Filling

We love Texas kolaches as much for their soft pastry as for the variety of sweet fillings. Click here for a cottage cheese kolache recipe.

Yield: makes 16 Kolaches


  • 8 oz. fresh or frozen blueberries
  • <sup>3</sup>⁄<sub>4</sub> cup sugar
  • <sup>1</sup>⁄<sub>2</sub> tsp. lemon juice


  • Combine the blueberries, sugar, lemon juice, and 1⁄4 cup water in a 2-qt. saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until thickened, 8–10 minutes. Remove pan from heat and mash the blueberries with a wooden spoon until chunky; let cool. Spoon about 1 tbsp. filling into each kolache before baking.
