How to make it
- Combine cream cheese and butter and mix well. Add flour and mix thoroughly. Form into 2 balls, wrap in waxed paper and refrigerate
- for at least 2 hours.
- In a large frying pan heat 2 tablespoons butter over medium high heat. Add mushrooms and onion and saute, stirring for about 1 minute. Remove mixture and set aside.
- In the same pan, heat 1 tablespoon butter, add your choice of meat and brown quickly.
- Drain off any fat and discard. Add salt, pepper, dill, tomato paste and sherry. Simmer over low heat for about 10 minutes, stirring frequently.
- Add mushrooms and simmer a few more minutes. Remove from heat, stir in sour cream and chives and mix well. Chill for 2 to 3 hours.
- How to Assemble:
- Roll out chilled dough. Cut into 2-inch circles. Place 1 tablespoon of chilled filling onto each circle and fold over to close. Seal edges with tines of fork. Place piroshkis on an ungreased baking sheet and bake in a 350 degree F oven for 12 to 15 minutes, or until light golden brown. Let stand for a few minutes before serving. These can also be deep fried - oh yummmm.
- Serve hot or at room temperature.
- Makes approximately 24.
- I serve sour cream and horseradish with these.
