April's Kolacky Cookies
Kolackys are small, fruit filled pastries of Eastern European origin. This recipe was submitted by April Runge. She adapted the traditional Kolachy recipe to a keto snack and sometimes varies it to include mashed sweetened blueberries or Walden's Fruit Spread as fillings. She also suggests dipping part of the cookie into a chocolate sauce made of cocoa and melted butter. The 4 (unfilled) cookies shown here together are 257 calories and a 4.26:1 ratio.
