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 258 calories and a 4:1 ratio. This recipe is also gluten-free. You will find this recipe in the Standard Snacks of KetoCalculator and also as a Food Item that you may add to meals.
