Fruit Filled Pastries

Piroshki are a Russian favorite. They are pastries that are filled with goodness. They can be filled with fruit, meat, vegetables, or cheese; whatever you prefer. Piroshki make a great dessert and I love making these with cherries and apples.


2 Buttermilk Biscuits containers
2 Jars of Cherries
3 Apples
1/4 cup cane sugar


1. Peel the apples and finely chop them. Mix the chopped apples with sugar in small bowl and set aside. 

2. Strain the cherries in another bowl. I purchase the cherries at Trader Joes and they are called "merello cherries". They come in a decent size glass jar. These little cherries are so delicious that I put them in everything from cakes to crepes. You can add them to ice cream and on top of pancakes.

3. Open up the biscuit containers and separate the dough slices and put them on a cookie pan. Let them rise in size, which typically takes an hour.

4. Take the individual dough slices and spread them out into a flat circle.

5. Put the fruit or whatever filling you will be using into the center of the flattened dough circle.

6. Add the two horizontal flaps together by pinching the two sides.

7. Twist the pinched side to make a pretty design or you can use a fork to create a unique design as well. Use your imagination ladies and gentlemen.

8. Butter the bottom of a cookie pan  or use parchment paper and put the fruit filled pasties next to each other.

9. Bake on 350 degrees for about 35-40 Minutes. The pastries will be golden brown when done.

10. Let them cool and enjoy with a cold glass of milk!
