  Categories: Desserts, Vegetables, Jewish
       Yield: 24 servings
  
   2 1/2 c  Sifted flour
       1 ts Baking powder
     1/2 ts Salt
       2    Eggs
     2/3 c  Salad oil
       2 tb Water
            Sift the flour, baking
            -powder and salt into a
            -bowl. Make a
            Well in the center and drop
            -the eggs, oil and water
            -into
            It. Work into the flour
            -mixture with the hand and
            -knead
            Until smooth.
            There are two ways to fill
            -the knishes. In either
            -case,
            Divide the dough in two and
            -roll as thin as possible.
            Brush with oil. Now you can
            -spread the filling on one
            -side
            Of the dough and roll it up,
            -like a jelly roll.  Cut
            -into
   5 1/2    Inch slices.
  
   Here’s the basics, fillings follow in the next messages.
   
   DOUGH:
   
   Place in an oiled baking sheet cut side down.  Press down lightly to
   flatten. Or you can cut the rolled dough in 3- inch circles. Place a
   tablespoon of the filling on each; draw the edges together and pinch
   firmly.  Place on an oiled baking sheet, pinched edges up
   
   In either case, bake in a 375 degree oven 35 minutes or until browned.
   Makes about 24.
   
   FILLINGS FOR KNISHES
   
   POTATO: 1 cup chopped onions 6 tablespoons chicken fat or butter 2
   cups mashed potatoes 1 egg 1 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon pepper
   
   Brown the onions in the fat or butter. Beat in the potatoes, egg,
   salt and pepper until fluffy.
   
   CHEESE 1 1/2 cups diced scallions or onions 4 tablespoons butter 2
   cups pot cheese 1 egg 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 1/8 teaspoon pepper 2
   tablespoons sour cream
   
   Scallions are better than onions for this, so try to get them. Brown
   the scallions in the butter and beat in the cheese, egg, salt, pepper
   and sour cream until smooth.
   
   MEAT: 1/2 cup minced onions 2 tablespoons chicken fat 1 1/2 cups
   ground cooked meat 1/2 cup cooked rice 1 egg 1 teaspoon salt 1/4
   teaspoon pepper
   
   Lightly brown the onions in the fat. Add the meat, rice, egg, salt and
   pepper, mixing until smooth.
   
   CHICKEN 1 1/2 cups ground cooked chicken 3/4 cup mashed potatoes 1
   egg, 1 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon pepper
   
   Mix all the ingredients until smooth.
   
   And finally, the classic:

   1/4 cup minced onions 6 tablespoons chicken fat or butter 4 cups
   mashed potatoes 1/2 cup potato flour 3 eggs 1 teaspoon salt 1/4
   teaspoon pepper
   
   Brown the onions in 4 tablespoons chicken fat or butter.  Cool.
