    ground cinnamon

Directions
1.
In medium-size bowl, whisk together the 3-1/2 cups flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Set aside.
2.
In large bowl, lightly beat yolks on medium speed. Gradually add granulated sugar, beating until pale and slightly thickened, about 3 minutes. Mix in butter. Add flour mixture alternately with milk, stirring with wooden spoon until combined.
3.
On well-floured surface, with floured rolling pin, roll dough into 1/2-inch thickness. Let rest for 15 minutes.
4.
Meanwhile, heat oil to 365 F (a cube of bread will be browned and crisp after 1 minute) in a heavy-duty saucepan over medium-high heat.
5.
Cut into doughnuts with 2-3/4-inch round cutter along with 3/4-inch round cutter for the centers. Gather scraps and re-roll if needed.
Coating:

1.
Place cinnamon-sugar in a small bowl. Carefully slip the doughnuts and doughnut holes, 3 or 4 at a time, into the hot oil. Fry until golden, turning once, about 2 to 3 minutes total per batch. Drain doughnuts on paper towel, then transfer still-warm doughnuts to cinnamon-sugar coating and roll to cover completely. Serve warm.

Authentic European bohemian-style kolaches (koh-LAH-chee), unlike the open filled versions found in most of the U.S., have sweet dough wrapped around the fruit filling. In this recipe, canned fruit pie filling makes the treat easy to assemble.
