Bit by bit add the flour until all has been used.

Knead dough on lightly floured board until glossy.

Place in bowl, cover to let rise in warm place (80?) until doubled in bulk about 1 hour.

This dough will not be quite as stiff as a roll dough.

Now using a tablespoon take egg-sized bits of the dough and roll into balls on the floured board.

Place on greased baking sheet about 1 inch apart.

Brush each with softened butter.

Let rise again. Covered until light.

Make an indentation in each, large enough to hold 1 teaspoon of fruit filling.

Sprinkle fruit with some of the topping.

Bake at 425? for 15 minutes. Remove from oven.

Brush with softened butter immediately.

Cool kolaches on wire rack.

Makes about 3½ dozen.

POPPY SEED FILLING: Mix well.

Place by teaspoon full into kolache indentations.
