All hail kolaches, the buns of Texas (and beyond). Here's why you want to make them at home.

Sweet kolaches can be filled with all kinds of things, including Nutella and crushed hazelnuts; apricot and streusel; and cream cheese and streusel.

Learn how to make a couple of Nebraska favorites — kolaches and dumplings, to be exact — at a cooking class coming this fall. 

On Oct. 20, Carol Niemann Louis will teach a class on how to make traditional kolaches and potato dumplings. 

The class, which will take place at 10:30 a.m. at the Czech and Slovak Educational Center and Cultural Museum, will feature her award-winning recipes made with yeast dough. The $25-a-person cost includes the class, a free beverage and food, including pork roast, potato dumplings and sauerkraut.

Seating is limited. To get more information or to register, visit the museum, which is open on weekends at 7400 Dodge St. inside the Crossroads Mall.
