All ready with aher PAnchos Apron, Lynn became the CEO of rolling out the dough
This is just after she threw the piece of dough in the air like a pizza
Dilgently making them all the same size
Some of the finished product.
If you haven't experienced a Russian food called Pytahee,I'd say you are missing out on a great down home comfort food. They are tasty little yeast dough babies filled with various fillings . Typically, Russian people always use vegetables and also Dry cottage cheese mixed with an egg. Vegetables can be kidney beans mashed with some butter, peas, beets, squash or pumpkin, potatoe and cottage cheese, or potatoe and yellow cheddar cheese or sourcrout drained and fried a little drier. You don't want the veggies to be too moist or the dough won't pinch together. Being that we are meatasaurs, we have developed a few of our own fillings and being adventuresome, I even filled some with black beans seasoned with a Victoria Epicurian spice called Pueblo Bean. Also, as I had some Indian Dal left over, I filled a dozen with that yummy curry mixture. The problem was that the dough exploded the filling out the sides of most of those, but they were still tatsy little morsels. A lovely old friend of ours named Lucy, told me about a yummy filling made with fried onions and chopped bacon. Yummy! I never looked back!These are a "Must have"! My girls love those best!
My practical mother, decided to invent a filling of hamburger fried with onions and mashed in with the potatoes to satisfy Walter, her hubby, who was inclined to eat more meat than veggies. This is another one I always make, but this time I used ground pork... mmmmmm...even better! So like empanadas, samosas, or English Pasties, these little filled treats can be a good side dish or a main meal. Serve them up with melted butter and sour cream... light of course.
