Warm milk in saucepan over medium heat until milk begins to steam. Remove from heat and let cook to 110-1115F. Use a candy thermometer to check temperature.


Dissolve yeast in water; set aside until foamy.


Melt butter in microwave and let cool for about 5 minutes.


In a large bowl combine eggs, sugar, salt and butter with a whisk. Add milk and yeast to bowl. Gradually add 2 cups of flour at a time, stirring with a wooden spoon to combine. Mix until dough begins to hold together. The dough will be very sticky. Don’t over mix, dough will be moist and light (It will not look like bread dough)


Coat a large bowl with canola oil. Place dough in bowl, cover with plastic wrap and let rise in warm place for 1-2 hours or until doubled in size. Punch dough down until it is deflated, recover and place in refrigerator for 4 hours.


Lightly grease a 12 by 17 inch baking pan with cooking spray. Leaving dough in the bowl, pinch off 2″ balls of dough. Shape and arrange on baking pan.


If you want to fill the kolaches make an indention in center of the roll with your fingers. Cover and let rise for 30-60 minutes, or until doubled in size.


Bake at 375 for 20-25 minutes or until lightly browned.


For Apples


Prepare apples, mix in lemon juice, sugar and cinnamon and let stand while preparing dough.


Combine streusel mix and set aside.


Top dough with apples and streusel before baking.

This is a very thin and crispy tart, so thin we could almost call it pizza di mele — and have a bit of a game with words and serve it alongside the fruit lasagne. it is the kind of French-influenced Milanese tart with a "wow factor" that we used to make at olive in the mornings, so it would look as though we had a pastry chef, when there were only three of us in the kitchen.

If you make these crisps more than a few hours before you need them, keep them in an airtight container until you are ready to use them (but don't keep them for more than a day). They should stay crisp; but, if not, you can put them back into the oven again — though they won’t he quite as crisp as the first time.
