    NorthwestGal's Note:

    This recipe is from the Betty Crocker International Cookbook, stating it is a savory appetizer (or often served as a light supper) popular in Russia and Eastern Europe. Since those are my dad's family's roots, I made some for him and he really enjoyed them. He said he recalled a similar recipe from his childhood that his grandmother and great-aunts used to make for family gatherings.

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 42

    Yield:

    Pirozhk ...

    Units: US | Metric

    Filling

    Pastry

    Pastry Wash

    Directions:

    1. 1
      For the filling, cook and stir beef with onion in 10-inch skillet until no pink remains in beef; drain. Stir in egg, dill (or parsley), salt and pepper.
    2. 2
      For the pastry, cut butter into flour and salt until dough resembles small peas. Stir in sour cream. Gather pastry into a ball. Divide dough into fourths; cover with damp towel to prevent drying.
    3. 3
      Roll each fourth into a 12-inch circle on a floured surface. Cut pastry into 3-inch circles. Place rounded teaspoonfuls of beef filling on center of each circle. Fold one side of pastry over filling, to form a half-circle. Dot pastry edges with water, and fold the bottom pastry over the top pastry about 1/4" (to keep filling in), and pinch edges to seal. Then fold the two ends in about 1/2 inch.
    4. 4
      Place, seam side down, on ungreased backing sheet. Repeat with remaining pastry. (Pastries can be covered and refrigerated no longer than 24 hours at this point.).
    5. 5
      Heat oven to 400°F.
    6. 6
      Mix egg yolk and water, and brush pastries with the egg yolk wash. Bake about 15 to 20 minutes, or until pastries are golden brown.
