Russian Pirogi

Hi there I just wanted to share the pictures of the Russian Pirogi making with my neighbor and her Mum. It was so much fun at noon she made the dough, then after it rose we made the perogi's. The instructions are from the Russian yeast packet and really I think her Mum just knows the measurements. So enjoy the snaps LOL

  • 500g of flour
  • 45g sugar
  • 6 g of yeast
  • 9g salt
  • one cup milk
  • 1/4 pack of butter
  1. melt the butter on the stove then mix all the above ingredients into a dough cover and let it rise 3 times and press down for about 3 hours
  2. then stuff with desired ingredients and bake
So Jasmine and I returned 3 hours later, with egg curry and Madeleines I wanted to take my favorite foods for them to try!

She then rolled out the dough and stuffed them with apple slices, cinnamon and sugar and baked it for 25 min at 350 degrees.

They can be filled with meat, veggies basically anything.

She also made a soup, with pork and cabbage Jasmine scoffed it! called Shee soup (sorry don't know spelling)

Making the pirogis

Here they are yummy, and so good with a cup of tea!

If you have a neighbor from a different country and Mum is visiting invite yourself over like I did, it was such a treat to watch her make them and she enjoyed sharing her Recipes with us!

  29. Good idea, we have such a diverse city here in Florida. I did eat some perogi's that a parent made for my daughter's school Christmas party. We were all supposed to bring a dish our family always made or an internationl dish where you were from.

    Thanks for sharing!
