Kolache dough formula

I was visiting some friends in Houston over the weekend and was introduced to the Kolache-- which is a kind of meat stuffed bread. There is a fruit filled variety, but I wasn't able to sample any of those.


 


Anyway, the bread dough seemed to be a pretty regular, enriched white bread, maybe with a hint of sweetness and a coat of butter on the outside. I was going to try making kolache with the white bread formula from the BBA, but thought I'd poll you guys in case someone has a kolache specific formula. I was able to find some recipies by volume, but I'd really prefer a percentage formula since there are too many assumptions to go wrong when converting a recipe from volume to weight.

I am not familar with the meat filled kolaches but my grandmothers use to make them.  I have posted a recipe that approximates their recipe on my private blog here.  Some photos of the forming for them are here.
