KNISHE DOUGH

KNISHE DOUGH

2 c. flour, sifted
3 eggs, well beaten
1 t. baking powder
½ t. salt
2 T. water
1 T. oil

Mix all ingredients and form into smooth dough-and roll it to 1/8 inch thickness OR use WONTON wrappers. Fill with anything your heart esires - my favorite is potato. All you do is make mashed potatoes, season them to taste, and let them cool. You may also use kasha-anything! Moisten the edges and fold over the filling, and press edges together. Place in a pan greased with hot oil and bake in a 350* F. oven until brown and crisp.

KNISHES

3 c. onion, chopped fine
1/3 c. vegetable oil
4 c. potatoes, cooked, mashed

1 t. water
1 egg yolk mixed with vegetable oil
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 c. water
½ t. salt
3 c. flour, sifted
Salt and pepper, to taste

Saute onion in oil until tender and lightly browned and them mix with potatoes, salt and pepper. Adjust seasoning.

ASSEMBLY: Measure flour, baking powder & salt in large bowl. Add water, egg and 1 T. oil. Stir until dough holds together. Put on a lightly floured surface & knead until smooth and elastic, using only enough extra flour to keep dough from sticking-this takes about 5 minutes. Put dough on lightly floured board, cover w/large bowl and let sit for 1/2 hour. Divide dough into 4 pieces. Roll out each piece into a 12" square on a lightly floured surface. Cut in half to make two 6" wide strips. Brush lightly with oil. Spoon 1/8 of the filling down the center of each strip (the long way) Fold 1 long side over the filling & roll to the other side. This will make a long roll. Pinch edges together. Repeat with rest of dough & filling. Put rolls on lightly oiled cooky sheets with the seam side down. Score with the blunt edge of a knife at 1-1/2" intervals, do not cut through. Brush with egg yolk mixture & bake in a preheated 375 * F. oven for 30 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from oven & cut all the way through where scored. If you are freezing these, allow to cool to room temperature, place on cookie sheet & put in freezer until frozen. Wrap well in plastic, over wrap with aluminum foil & return to freezer. To reheat, preheat oven to 375* F. and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until hot.
