Inspired by early summer, beautiful weather and enabled by my wonderful Mother-in-Law who visited and played with Sophia, I took on the challenge of making Pirozhki for the first time ever. Since Late Spring/Early Summer is in the air and strawberries are sweet, the rhubarb is tart they together will comprise my Saturday pirozhki filling. The dough was a yeast-based dough with butter (what could be better than puffy, buttery dough?) and the filling was just diced strawberries, rhubarb and a bit of sugar. I am still practicing my crimping skills… maybe a few hundred more batches and my parties will be uniform…
Aaaaaaaaaaaaaa, pirozhki!!! Send me some, even the ugly ones, we’ll eat them as is! I haven’t eaten those in ages!
Better yet, come visit us and I’ll make you a batch!
