Currently in Kerrville TX (Low 38 Mostly Sunny and Very Warm High 78)
Whenever we are in an area we like to immerse ourselves in the local cuisine, scenery and history. Driving around Kerrville we saw kolaches a lot, even saw them in the frozen food section at the grocery stores, so we decided to investigate further. From wideopencountry.com we found this out.
"According to Texan vernacular, a kolache is a breakfast food comprised
of sweet bread filled with various breakfast items. A Texas kolache can
contain sausage, eggs, cheese, or any number of other creative
delicacies. However, denotatively, that is a klobasnek. A kolache, in
fact, has no meat in it at all, and instead is filled with fruit purees,
cream cheese or other sweet fillings. For the sake of simplicity,
however, we will refer to all of the above as kolaches, because this is
Texas, and our language is not always based on accuracy."
We went to Snowflake Donuts and Kolaches for our first adventure with kolaches. We had a sausage and cheese and a ham and cheese for breakfast.
Of course while there we had to try the traditional kolaches, a lemon cream cheese and an apple cream cheese.
We give a thumbs up to this regional offering. There are places that are supposedly better in the Hill Country, if they are better they must be incredible because these were pretty darn good.
Till next time,
