Nosh on a Knish

Knish from Schimmel, lower east side, Manhatta...

My fiance is from Long Island and my mother is from New York, so we both grew up with a love for Knishes. I was thinking of comfort food to make around the holidays and Knishes popped into my head. Neither one of us had had one in years and we both thought they sounded like just the thing in this kind of weather {15 degrees in Atlanta, that is}.

I found this simple recipe on this site and knew I’d be making these again when Jim scarfed down three in 10 minutes. I’m delivering a couple to my parent’s fridge tomorrow afternoon so they can enjoy for dinner tomorrow night — the Knishes along with the Broccoli and Cheese Soup I made (using broccoli leftover from the Knishes).

I’m excited to experiment with some different fillings later this week. Next up — I’m thinking: Corned Beef Knishes!

Broccoli Knish
Serves 6
Recipe Ingredients:

Preheat the oven to 375 degreesIn a bowl combine the potatoes, matzah meal, potato starch, onion, egg whites, pepper and salt and knead together. Divide the dough into 6 balls and flatten each. Divide the broccoli evenly onto each circle, fold over, and press edges to seal.
Generously coat a baking sheet with the cooking spray. Arrange the knishes in a single layer and place the baking sheet on the bottom rack of the oven. Bake for 15 minutes on each side. Serve hot and with mustards.
