Piroshki – small pies made from yeasted dough – are a traditional Christmas food in Russia. They’re most often filled with a mixture of minced meat (pork or beef), cabbage or mushrooms, or even sweet fillings. They make a perfect Christmas Eve snack, served warm and fresh from the oven.
Our vegetarian recipe, made with cheese and mushrooms, are shaped into mice to portray the Mouse King and his soldiers from The Nutcracker.
