Russian cabbage pie

    1 hour 15 min

    This cabbage pie is very popular in Russian cuisine. Traditionally, it is made with a yeast puff pastry but normal puff pastry will work just fine. You can bake it as one big pie, or make small triangles called pirozhki.

    This was really good. I did add crispy crumbled bacon and used dried dill. I think next time I will add 1 teaspoon of caraway seed.  -  17 Mar 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
