Ingredients:  
3/4 C. milk
1/4 lb. softened margarine
1/2 C. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 C. warm water
1 pkg. dry yeast
2 eggs, beaten thick

Directions:
Directions:
Sprinkle yeast on top of warm water and let dissolve. Beat margarine with eggs and sugar until fluffy. Add dissolved yeast and mix well. Mix 1 C. flour with salt and beat into egg mixture. Start adding flour, 1 cup at a time until dough is no longer sticky. Knead until dough is smooth and set in a greased dish (turn dough once so top is also greased), cover with kitchen towel and let rise in warm place until double. Punch dough down and knead slightly to remove air bubbles. Divide dough into thirds and roll out to about 1/2 inch thick and spread with filling. Roll up and place on greased baking sheet and cover and let rise (about 45 mins.) and bake at 350 for about 25 to 30 minutes, until brown.

Fillings:

Nut Filling
8 oz. walnuts, chopped finely (or ground)
1 C. granulated sugar
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
Rind of one lemon, grated
1-3/4 C. milk
Mix together and spread on Kolachi.

Pineapple Filling:

1 T. butter
1/2 C. granulated sugar
1/8 tsp. salt
3 T. cornstarch
3/4 C. Pineapple Juice
1 large can of pineapple drained, juice reserved
1 tsp. lemon jice

Over medium heat, melt butter in saucepan, add sugar and cornstarch and stir until smooth. Add pineapple juice and lemon juice and stir constantly until sauce comes to gentle boil and thickens. Remove from heat and add pineapple.
Cool before spreading on kolachi.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Thea Curtis was a neighbor of ours on Heck Rd. in Unity. She was a very nice lady who baked wonderfully and every time we visited her she would serve us some delicious baked goods. Sadly, she died quite young from cancer, but I'll never forget her as she was one of the nicest women I ever met. She had a son, Jack, who was a friend of David's.
