Bohemian Kolacky cookie

A favorite Christmas cookie from my childhood is my Grandparents' Bohemian Kolacky (yep, this is how they spelled it).  The kids love every step of making these.  From pushing their thumb prints in the cookies, to sprinkling the streusel on top.  My Grandparents immigrated from Czechoslovakia and opened a bakery in Chicago and this is the original recipe from their Czech village.  I love the simple ingredients and the sugar is minimal as far as Christmas cookies go.  I used a mixed berry jelly but you could use any fruit compote.  I hope you enjoy as much as we do!
