It’s been a beautiful morning so far. 🙂
So, funny story: I bought this kolache from a group raising money for the Clutier Public Library. One of the other guys from my group rolled through the town a little later. After purchasing and consuming a kolache like the one above, he walked past a stand on the opposite side of the street, where a woman was selling kolaches she made herself. She insisted my buddy try one of hers–no cost–because she knew hers were better.
Her secret? “Mine are made with real butter.” Cute. I can only imagine the intensity of the long-standing rivalry between the butter-using and margarine-using factions of kolache chefs in Clutier, IA. 🙂
