Great Great Grandma Betty’s Kolachky Recipe

12-24-16 kolachky

And, just like that, Christmas is over. It seems like the season was especially short this year (probably because Mack’s winter break didn’t start until December 23rd!), but I’m not feeling the typical post-holiday blues (probably because we really did have a nice season of peace and love and toys). When I was growing up, [...]
