    Dasha's Note:

    A sweetness that will melt in your mouth and spoil your taste buds. This is a traditional Russian cheese making process that takes THREE days. Use frozen rolls for dough, they taste better and save you time and frustration.

    11. 11
      Meanwhile place frozen rolls on a cookie sheet and cover with plastic wrap.
    12. 12
      Place in the warm oven. (If the oven is too hot, leave the door open for no more than 5 minutes).
    13. 13
      This is the quick defrosting process. Let the dough rise for about 2 hours.
    14. 14
      Microwave cream cheese for 45 seconds to soften.
    15. 15
      With a large spoon, mix together your prepared cheese, condensed milk, whipped cream, cream cheese, and vanilla.

      Heat oil in a deep skillet on medium heat. The oil should rise about 1/4 to 1/2 inch.

      Fry several of the piroshki on both sides.
    22. 22
      Cover between flippings.
    23. 23
      They cook about 2 minutes or less, but be careful not to burn them.
    24. 24
      You will need to watch the skillet the entire time now and may not leave.
    25. 25
      Place Piroshki in a strainer or on napkins to collect excess oil.
    26. 26
      They keep well in fridge for several days, But I assure you they will get eaten before then.

      Good recipe, good directions but very time consuming. After 3 days of cooking, we eat the Piroshki in 10 seconds. Thank you Dasha.
