This fruit kolaches recipe by Catherine’s Plates on YouTube shows how to make an assorted fruit kolaches using frozen rolls and variations of pie filling, jelly, or jam. Kolaches are great breakfast sweets to have in the morning with a cup of coffee or for a snack throughout the day. I think it’s perfect to use the frozen rolls to speed up the baking process. I know baking can get frustrating, but this an easy and simple recipe that anyone can follow along with.



  • 1 pkg Rhodes Yeast Dinner Rolls Frozen
  • 8 oz pkg cream cheese, room temperature
  • 2 tbsp powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1-2 tbsp milk
  •  variations of pie filling
  •  variations of jelly or jam
  •  cooking spray
  • 2 tbsp butter melted


First, in a large baking sheet lined with parchment paper, place the frozen rolls on top with about 2 inches between each roll. Cover with plastic wrap that is sprayed with cooking spray, placing the sprayed side down on top of the rolls. Let it rise for about 3-4 hours in a warm place.

Overall, these are like big cheese danishes that are easy to make because they are mainly premade ingredients. I’ve never had kolaches, except in cooking form. It would be interesting to try this in a big dough form and compare to a regular cheese danish. I know that kolaches are more dense and sweet.
