    We had a can of Solo Almond Paste on the larder shelf since Missouri, likely 10 years old, and I ached to make some Cream Cheese Kolacky, so that Solo today provided the incentive. Here's the dough being mixed:

    Mixing done, a big ball of yuck!

    Cream cheese topping, my first time ever! My Mother almost always included this along with fruit topping when making a batch.

    Cutting those babies out using my wife's cookie cutter. My Mother used a drinking glass. She also proudly displayed an upheld fist and arm when asked about her "Mix-Master"!

    After 5 minutes in the oven. The Almond topping turned out to be very thick and unwieldy, probably too old, but my wife proclaimed it usable!

    Done! 20 minutes at 375`F. Would have liked slightly browner crust, but Almond was turning brown. They taste real close to my Mother's. I am satisfied! Glad she taught me about cooking. Frank

    Never heard of these Frank, look delicious.

    The old ways are always the best. My mum used to roll out pastry with a milk bottle in the fifties :rolleyes:
