    pattikay in L.A.'s Note:

    My Moosewood Cookbook pretty much falls open to the page with this recipe. These are cheesy and delicious. It's a bit of work if you make your own dough, but they always work out great (I have been known to use frozen bread dough). Prep time includes rising time.

    1. 1
    2. 2
      If using fresh spinach, wash, stem and finely chop, steam it quickly on medium high heat, adding no additional water. When wilted and deep green, remove to a bowl with a slotted spoon. (if using frozen - thaw and squeeze out as much moisture as you can).
    3. 3
      Saute onion and garlic in butter till translucent and soft.
    4. 4
      Combine all ingredients, mix well, salt and pepper to taste.
    5. 5
    6. 6
      Soften together yeast, water and honey.
    7. 7
      Add salt and flour to make a soft dough. Knead 10 minutes, or till smooth and elastic, adding flour if necessary to keep from being sticky.
    8. 8
      Cover and let rise till doubled (about 1 hour - less if using rapid rise yeast).
    9. 9
      Punch down. Divide into six sections and roll out in rounds 1/4 inch thick.
    10. 10
      Fill with 1/2-3/4 cup filling, placing filling on one half of the circle, leaving a 1/2 inch rim.
    11. 11
      Moisten the rim with a little water, fold the empty side over, and crimp the edges.
    12. 12
      Prick here and there with a fork to allow steam to escape.
    13. 13
      Bake on an oiled tray (I use a baking stone) in a preheated 450 oven for 15-20 minutes or till crisp and lightly browned.
    14. 14
      Brush each pastry with a little butter as it comes from the oven.

      My mom made these for our Christmas eve dinner (we're a big group of vegetarians) and they were excellent! I know she said she had a lot of filling left over like some others said. I used the dough recipe last week for regular pizza and it's the best dough I've made so far. Thanks for the recipe!

      Yummmm! I have made this several times. I double the recipe and put the extras in the freezer for later. They freeze really well. I always add more nutmeg than is called for in the recipe because I love the flavour of nutmeg with the creamy spinach. This last time I added about 1 cup sliced mushrooms in the pan with the onions and instead of fresh garlic I used dried roasted garlic. I was all out of parmesan cheese so I used half mozzarella and half cheddar. It worked out really well and was delicious!
