I remember my Grandma whipping these up and she would tell me stories when she was a lil' girl in the Ukraine how her Grandma would make these....about a few hundred. But in the old days they baked them in their big outdoor ovens. Then when she passed on my Mom and Aunt would whip these up and I always helped trying to piece them together........this year my daughter couldn't help as she was busy with school in her last year for her degree.
A common variety of "piroshki" are baked stuffed buns made from yeast dough and often glazed with egg to produce the common golden colour.....or they can be fried. They may contain sweet-based fillings such as stewed or fresh fruit (apples, cherries, apricots, etc), jam, or cottage cheese; a vegetable filling (mashed potatoes, mushrooms, onions and egg, cabbage); or meat.
Here are my 'piroshki' frying away.
These are my potato stuffed "piroshki".
Ukrainian Christmas Carollers.
Cabbage stuffed "piroshki."
I lined these "piroshki" in rows standing up so they won't get squished..
Thanks for stopping by........
