Traditional Russian Pirozhki
Small pockets of dough are filled with cabbage and hard-cooked egg before baking. I’m Russian, and this recipe has been handed down from my grandma. They taste delicious, and are a great comfort food (or any other food).
Place 1/2 cup milk in a cup or small bowl.
Stir in sugar and sprinkle yeast over the top.
Set aside until foamy about 10 minutes.
Pour the remaining milk into a large bowl.
Add the melted butter egg salt and 1 cup of flour to the large bowl with the milk.
Stir in the yeast mixture.
Mix in flour 1 cup at a time until dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl and doesn’t stick to your hands.
Cover the bowl loosely and set in a warm place to rise for about 1 hour.
Dough should almost triple in size.
