Cooked pies are my favorite

The recipe was read in Borispol airport in Kiev in some culinary newspaper in the Ukrainian language. Yes, strange ways and fates get to us recipes. When I made them for the first time, I understood that fate itself was leading me to them.

How to cook cakes "my favorites" step by step with photos


So! Beat the eggs and sugar

- into a real, white, fluffy mass.

Boil 125 ml of milk.

Pour boiling milk into the eggs, kneading vigorously to make sure the eggs don't curdle! Allow to cool.

Prepare the starter as follows: Heat up a little 125 ml of milk,

Grate a handful of flour and yeast into a crumb,

1 tbsp.l. mix sugar with milk, flour and yeast

- add flour as needed to make a dough similar to pancakes

Put the bowl with the sourdough in our cooking and let it rise.

It's going great, though I didn't add two handfuls of yeast like some Oscar-winning pros.

Now we make the dough. Pour the egg mixture into the sourdough, then melted butter, vegetable oil, salt, sugar, vodka and flour.

Knead until it forms a kolobok - if necessary, add flour, but the dough should not be tight. I try to knead the dough first, if it doesn't turn out like a ball, then I go back and forth with the flour.

Look how the dough starts to come off the bowl on its own... - How the kolobok is shaping up.

Back in the pressure cooker - let it come up! At first I had it in my bedroom, which is cool - we don't heat it (it keeps better in the cool!), the dough came up, but slowly (which is a good thing in and of itself!), but that day I had a fit of culinary rabies - I cooked the whole day, and I had no strength to wait, though I usually wait! So I put it in the oven at 40°. Then the dough had a fit - a vertical takeoff, it came up not 2-3 times, but exactly 4-5!

All - cut! Sprinkle the table with flour, cut the dough in slices and knead into circles with your fingers. This dough is very pleasant to work with.

I put the filling (I have a poppy seed - I ground 200g of steamed poppies with 2 limes, mixed with a handful of plums soaked in brandy, chopped into small pieces, added powdered sugar to taste and a handful of nuts). I pinched them with a scallop like this.

I made two trays.

Baked on a baking tray in the oven at 180°C, but you can also fry them, which I have not tried.

While the cakes are sitting in the oven, make the glaze: Mix sour cream with powdered sugar.

Take out the ready cakes and smear liberally with the glaze.

Put them in the oven and let the glaze set. You can, of course, simply grease (as usual) with egg yolk, but we are not looking for easy ways!

This is what I got!

To say it was delicious is nothing to say!

My folks were not just eating it, they were raving about it!

Note the delicate and fine texture!

Yes, it's a strange way and fate that recipes come to us. The first time I made them, I realized that fate was leading me to them. The first time after we left the Soviet Union (I should clarify that it was the! the great, mighty! and not a remnant of it!), I came to my lost motherland, i.e. Ukraine, in 1997. And I was compelled to fly not to Kiev but to Dnepropetrovsk, they say, to my Krivoy Roghi closer! Yeah, 1. more expensive, of course. The most interesting thing is that when we stopped there and waited for the other passengers, the border guards were standing by the plane, and no one was allowed on the board, not even on the ramp - what an independent state! It was a revelation for me, I somehow missed it when everyone became independent), 3. But the most interesting thing was on departure: as a civilized person I weighed my luggage (the allowed 20 kg per head and my purse as hand luggage) - they made me weigh my hand luggage too, saying that I was overweight. Me, being a person "experienced" in Europe and flights, I prove that my hand luggage is my right! Nakosya, that's where I have it, and here I have it... (oops, I'll say nothing, or they'll send me to the bathhouse, I mean to the ban!). In a word, against scrap can not take but another scrap. I had no crowbar: the thing is that it smelled of kerosene - the plane was starting up, and I for some reason (???...I really wanted to.. "back" to the boring, fed-up Nemetland. I had no scrap, but I had 101 marks. Anyway, they took the money away from me like a plane pass. Yes, I was also happy and thankful that I could go home. What's that?? What's the receipt?? It was for their kids' milk! Well, I made a conclusion - I'm a fast learner, I'm a prodigy! I fly strictly to Kiev - a million fun: you see all your friends, visit all sights, go to the theater, take part in another revolution, get tired, and then go home! At departure I act reasonably and with the calculation: in the luggage strictly 20 kg, the rest in hand luggage - a lot of bacon and a lot of books - not that here books are not published, but it is too expensive, in Ukraine I make wholesale purchases! I disguise everything in innocent plastic bags - "What can I put in them?! Well, not more than a kilo!" I always take a companion of friends - usually in Boryspil in the zone "check-in" I always take a pile of passports, put mine and my ticket on top and wave it in front of the officer on duty - "I fly by" "My nicht fuerstehen, my nicht fuerstehen! ♪ Behind me with my luggage cart, supposedly my domineering husband ♪. ¶ And while I'm ¶ "check-in", ♪ checkin' in my luggage, he's with ♪ "# Hand luggage #" "smoking in the corner". Naturally, my hand luggage is too heavy to carry, so I buy magazines, newspapers, and sit in the corner and read until the flight... it was under such blessed conditions that i read this recipe - hurray for ukrainian housewives! it's about the benefits of reading, not about how laudable it is to fool airport workers. In general, I have to give them credit: at least some retained a sense of humor, when I first arrived with my daughter in Kiev, a young customs officer stopped her (me no, did not stop - let her through!) and asked her if she had any weapons... she, without giving him the chance to finish, answers: yes, and drugs, too, but you should have your own already. He flirted with her and laughed... Can you imagine what would happen in Europe with that answer?? I don't even want to think about it! Lifelong surveillance as a terrorist suspect, not to mention a cheeseball at the airport and a 2-day delay of all flights!
