Thanks so much, Melissa! They’re delicious!
- 5 to 6 cups of bread flour
- ¼ cup of sugar
- 1 ½ tsps. of salt
- 2 pk. of yeast (14 gr.)
- 1 cup of whole milk
- 2/3 cup of water
- 4 tbsps. of butter
- 2 eggs (room temperature)
- 1 package of Chorizo de San Manuel jalapeño and cheese sausages
- 4 tbsps. of melted butter for brushing
- Combine your sugar, salt, yeast, and two cups of flour in a mixer bowl.
- In a microwavable bowl, mix your milk, water, and four tablespoons of butter and set on high for 1 ½ minutes, or until the temperature reaches 120°F to 130°F.
- Using a mixer, slowly add your milk mix from the microwave.
- Add the eggs and continue to mix on low speed until blended well.
- Next, change the mixing paddle on the mixer to a dough kneading hook and add another two cups of flour.
- Knead for five minutes on low speed while adding the remaining amount of flour so the dough becomes cohesive and elastic. If you choose to hand-knead the dough, do it for 10 minutes on a floured surface.
- Place the dough in a bowl greased with olive oil and cover it with a clean towel in a warm, draft-free environment.
- After an hour, uncover the dough and punch down. Then divide the dough into 10 equal parts.
- Cut the sausages into 2½ inch lengths.
- Take each portion of the dough and shape them into balls. Then, on a floured surface, roll each ball into a flat, circular shape.
- Place a cut sausage on the circular flour shape and wrap it to form the kolache.
- Allow the kolaches to rise for 40 minutes.
- Preheat your oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment or baking paper.
- Brush the top of each kolache with melted butter and bake for 25 to 30 minutes until the kolaches are golden brown.
- Remove from the oven and let them cool before serving.
