- Completely dissolve sour cream with a little bit of milk. You may use a whisk.

- Meanwhile place frozen rolls on a cookie sheet and cover with plastic wrap.
- Place in the warm oven. (If the oven is too hot, leave the door open for no more than 5 minutes).
- This is the quick defrosting process. Let the dough rise for about 2 hours.
- Microwave cream cheese for 45 seconds to soften.

- Very lightly flour your palms and fingers. Flatten a roll in your palms.
- Fill with a heaping Tbsp of filling and press shut around the edges using your fingers.
- 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.
- Cover between flippings.
- They cook about 2 minutes or less, but be careful not to burn them.
- You will need to watch the skillet the entire time now and may not leave.
- Place Piroshki in a strainer or on napkins to collect excess oil.
- They keep well in fridge for several days, But I assure you they will get eaten before then.
