pirozhki with cabbage

Directions:

  • Pour 1/4 cup of warm milk into a small bowl; add 1 teaspoon of yeast and a pinch of sugar.  Mix well, cover, and leave for ten minutes for the yeast to activate.  In ten minutes it should become foamy, that’s how you know that your yeast is fresh and isn’t expired.

  • Add the activated yeast to the rest of the warm milk; add salt and mix.

  • Slowly sift in 2 cups of white flour.  If the dough is still too sticky, add a little more flour.
  • Add a tablespoon of oil and form the dough into a ball.  Place it into a clean dry bowl, cover, and let sit in a warm place for 1.5-2 hours until the dough triples in size. The dough will become soft, airy and easy to work with.
