So my first contribution to the Event is Piroshki (small pies) stuffed with leek and eggs.

Piroshki with eggs and leek

Piroshki are small pies with vegetable stuff, meet stuff or berries stuff. Some people love to have them baked, other prefer to have them fried. I like the baked one. Piroshki in Russia is a kind of fast food sold everythere. As far as I care for my health and weight :) I do not eat piroshki often (maybe a couple of times a year). But my family folks feel OK about eating such food :)

To make piroshki like the ones on the picture you need:
Yeast dough 1 kg,
10 boiled eggs,
2 batchs of leek.
You will get about 20-30 pies.

Usually I buy yeast dough in a local bakery so I can't give you a good recipe of it. Sorry for the confusion. I hope you are better than me in a dough making process. I just know that you need some milk, some eggs, some yeast, salt and sugar as basic ingredients. (Oh My, I spoiled the event...)

Chop the leek  and salt it. Chop the eggs and mix with the leek.

Cut the dough in small parts and flatten them out. Place some stuff in the center of the round dough piece and wrap it (join the dough edges).

Bake the pies in the oven till the crust goes brown.


The rest of the ingredients
The recipe is sent to "Flavours of Russia" Event

Thank you for choosing Russian cuisine for this challenge. I have lots of Russian recipes on my blog Chez Maximka, if you search for Russian (food) you can find many recipes. I will do a special blog post for your event rather than submit my old posts.

They look fantastic, I imagine they would go well with a preserve , perhaps piccalilli .
