Recipe for Ukrainian Cheese Crust Pyrizhky


Ukrainian Cheese Crust Pyrizhky:

Most homemakers, at one time or another, wonder what to bake for some special occasion. Here is a good recipe for cheese-crust pastries with a prune-nut filling.

1/2 cup butter
1 cup cottage cheese
3 tablespoons sugar
1 cup sifted flour
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
20 prunes, stewed
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
1 tablespoon honey


Cream the butter with the cottage cheese and sugar. Sift the flour with the cinnamon and salt. Combine both mixtures and mix well. Chill thoroughly.

Pit the prunes, split into halves, and fill each half with a mixture of the nuts and honey. Roll the dough 1/8 inch thick and cut into rounds.

Place the filled prune-half on each round, bring the edges together, seal, and shape into an oblong. This is the traditional shape for pyrizhky.

Place on a baking sheet, brush with melted butter, and make a slit on the top of each for the steam to escape. Bake in a moderate over 350 degrees F. for 15 to 20 minutes, or until delicately browned. Yield: 40 pyrizhky.
