Remove dough from refrigerator.

Shape into balls about 1 1/2 inch in diameter, and place on lightly greased baking sheets about an inch apart.

Flatten balls to 1/2 inch and let rise for about 10 minutes.

Make indentions in the middle of each kolache by pressing down firmly with the first two fingers of both hands.

Spoon about 1 T filling into each indention.

Sprinkle about 1/2 t streusel topping over filling.

Cover kolaches with a sheet of wax paper, and let rise until double in bulk.

Remove wax paper and bake in 350 degree oven for 15−20 min. or until light tan.

Remove from oven and brush top edges and sides with melted butter.
