 Ingredients List

  • 1 c Flour
  • 1/2 ts Salt
  • 1 Egg
  • 4 tb Cold water


Mix all ingredients with enough water to make a soft dough. After kneading
well, roll out thin. Cut dough into about 60 squares. On each square, place
1 teaspoon of filling. Fold in half to make triangles. Pinch edges
together, making sure this is done well to keep filling from escaping.
Carefully drop in salted boiling water and cook until all pirohy rise to
the top of the water and cook for 5 minutes longer. Carefully strain. Place
in serving dish and pour over golden brown butter. On top of this, if you
are serving the panske pirohy with the lekvar filling, sprinkle nuts and
sugar. If you are serving them "po liptovsky", (these are filled with
potato and dill filling) sprinkle some cottage cheese on top. Some prefer a
little onion fried in butter until golden brown and this is poured over the
kind that have the potato filling. Cheese Filling: 1/2 cup dry cottage
cheese, 1 egg yolk, a bit of lemon rind, and sugar to taste. Combine
ingredients and mix thoroughly. Potato Filling: 1 large potato cooked and
mashed. A little fresh or dried dill, 1 egg yolk, salt and pepper to taste.
Mix throughly. Cabbage Filling: 1 lb. head of cabbage chopped fine, to
which add 1 teaspoon salt and set aside to stand for several minutes. Then
squeeze out water from cabbage and fry in 1 tablespoon butter that has been
browned. Add 1 teaspoon sugar. Fry until golden brown, stirring
occasionally to keep from burning.
