Michael Kissane Process Analysis 3/6/08 Kolach or more commonly known as a pastry filled with anything from fruits to cheeses originated in Europe, but has become more and more common in the United States. When I was younger my grandmother would always bake Kolach for my cousins and I and we would all help throughout.

Next, you dissolve the three packages of dry yeast in a cup of warm water (not hot – that would kill the yeast), add a spoonful of sugar to the mixture, and set it in the center of the stovetop to warm (not on a burner). This is called “proofing the yeast.” Before you use all the rest of the ingredients, it’s a good thing to find out if the yeast is active and working.
