Cupcake Wishes Do Come True

In the last sentence of yesterday's blog post, I wished for a cupcake. Well, God answered my prayers. John came home this afternoon with a box of goodies from the Owen Street Bakery in Swoyersville. It's uncanny how there's a cherry on top of this cupcake as well as the one in my logo. Hmmm. Be careful what you wish for!
The Owen Street Bakery makes the BEST apricot kolachy. A traditional Polish pastry, each kolachy is loaded with apricot filling and covered in sugar. Yum!

A stickler for spelling, I searched the Internet for the correct spelling of kolachy, and I came up with kolacz, kolachki, kolacky, kolachy, kolace, kolachi, kolache, and kolachke. Spell it how you want to; these treats are addicting.

Here's a closeup of these awesome treats. If you're looking for delicious pastries, be sure to give the Owen Street Bakery a try. They're located at 90 Owen Street in Swoyersville, PA. They can be reached at (570) 287-3940.

My knowlege of Slovak is rather limited, but as far as kolachi are concerned, I believe a kolach refers to just one, usually a large roll. Kolachy or kolachi are more than one large kolach. Kolachki are more than one small roll. I don't know the singular of the small ones, other than simply, 'kolach'.
