      I'd never prepared or even eaten knishes before, so I can't comment on whether this is an authentic-style recipe. As for the mechanics of the recipe: the knishes came together perfectly (and I will admit to having had problems with previous attempts using other recipes in getting potato patties to stick together). I used "floury-type" potatoes (not certain what the North-American equivalent is) which are of a dry consistency and they were a good choice. While my husband and I enjoyed these, we did feel they were a bit on the bland-side, taste-wise despite all the good things added in. Next time I'll up the amount of seasoning in the potato mixture itself, especially garlic, salt and pepper. I think I'll also probably try them using potato flour rather than regular flour, they were kind of gummy in texture on the inside. I served this with sauerkraut and various sausages- nice combination. Thanks for posting.
