Kolaches are sweet pastries famous in Czech, which are made of yeast dough with a filling of fruit or cheese. Though it is a sweet dish, yet it is healthier than a donut. So, when you are craving something sweet, why opt for a donut. Opt for Kolaches to consume a fewer number of calories with this sweet, delightful treat.

Place the dough in a greased bowl, after resting for a while, roll it. Place them on baking sheets and let them rise for 45 minutes. Press the centre of the dough, add filling to it, brush with egg white and bake. Serve.
