I have seen this spelled Blachinda, Plachinda and Plachenda. Recipe by: Idella Ruff Schott Wilson Posted on an old messageboard about 1998 for a request. The original poster stated "this is how my aunt makes it." Amount unknown because I have never made it so I won't begin to tell you the servings. Note the caculations on the side will be for the entire recipe not single servings.

  3. Put 2-3 tablespoons filling on half of diameter. Fold the other half over filling.
