Sweet Pirojki Filled with Cream Cheese and Poppy Seeds

Baked pirojki are everybody's favorite "sweet pirogi". This delightful combination of cream cheese and poppy seeds is going to make you taste buds dance. It gives such pleasing taste. First time I tried these pirogi I loved it so much. I never made poppy seeds filling before because it was too dry for me. But when you add cream cheese to it, that becomes scrumptious.

Ingredients:
12 oz warm milk

1 stick of melted butter

3 eggs

2 tbs sour cream

1 cup sugar 

1 tsp salt

2 tsp dry yeast
1 tsp vanilla
5 1/2 cups flour (I use Canadian flour)


Mix all ingredients in the bread maker. Set it on dough.  


For sweet fillings we use one of these choices:
  • Shredded apples steamed with butter and cinnamon
  • Blueberries
  • Any fruit preserve 

 Mix all liquid ingredients first.

Add dry ingredients. Mix with a spoon. Set on dough.











                                 Poppy Seeds Filling: (recipe from Olga's factory)

1 3/4 cups poppy seeds 
1 cup milk
1/2 stick butter
1 cup sugar
1 pinch of salt
2 eggs, beaten


Grind poppy seeds with a coffee grinder or magic bullet. I did 1/2 cup at the time for 30 seconds.
Heat the milk, butter, salt and sugar on medium heat until the sugar dissolves.
Fluff the eggs.
Slowly pour in a small amount of the hot milk into the eggs, mixing it fast. This will prevent the eggs from scrambling. When you add about half of the milk to the eggs, pour the egg mixture back into the saucepan and cook on medium-low heat until the mixture thickens, just like making pudding.
Add poppy seeds. Mix well and let it cool.





    

    

   Cream Cheese:
16 oz cream cheese (softened)
1/2 cup powder sugar
2 egg yolks
1 tsp vanilla


Cream cheese need to be softened for few hrs at room temperature. Mix cream cheese until fluffy. Add powder sugar, mix.
Add vanilla.
Add egg yolks. Mix until smooth.







Fluff 2 egg whites in the separate bowl.






Now everything is ready to start making pirogi.
This is a traditional way of making pirogi. For the  pirog you need to roll the dough like rectangle. Spread cream cheese then spread poppy seeds and roll it in. My next step picture was blurry  so i did not put it on.
Put pirog in oiled baking sheet. Spread egg whites on top. Put it in the oven on 170F for 20 min.
I like pirojki better so i made em.  Make little circles Put 1 tsp of cream cheese and 1 tsp of poppy seeds.



Then pinch the edges together to seal the dough. Turn over and put sealed side first into baking dish.
Dip one side in oil so it won't stick together.
Put in the oiled baking dish. Spread egg whites on top. Put it in the oven on 170F for 20 min. 




You can add any type of fillings.
After 20 min turn on 325F bake until golden brown.
Now enjoy pirojki with your favorite tea or coffee.

    1. No, It works perfect with Canadian flour. Sometimes if you use different flour, this recipe will need more flour.
      Enjoy!!!
