Vegan Kolaches

Step 1

Stir together the strawberry almond milk, sugar, and yeast in a large bowl and allow to sit for a few minutes until foamy.

Step 2

Stir in oil, sea salt, and 3 cups flour, then mix until combined. Knead in the remaining 3 cups of flour, lightly grease a large mixing bowl with olive oil, then cover and allow to rise overnight in the fridge.

Step 3

When the dough doubles, portion into 1.5 oz pieces and shape into balls, then place onto a greased baking sheet about 1 inch apart. Gently cover with greased plastic wrap and allow the dough to rise again until doubled in size (about two hours).

Step 4

Afterward, press down the centers of the rounds with your thumb (coated in flour to prevent sticking) then fill each indent with 1 tsp of strawberry jam filling and sprinkle with the crumble / popsika on top.

Step 5

Finally, preheat the oven to 350°F. Remove the plastic wrap and brush the tops with melted vegan butter and bake for 15–18 minutes.
