    Thanks so much for this recipe. I had a demented desire to channel the cooking skills of my late Doukhobor grandma tonight and this recipe fit the bill perfectly. I filled half the pyrahi with beets, dill and onions and the other half with potato, onion and squash. yum.

    Thank you for posting this, it was a new experience for me. It was less complicated then it looks, I halved the recipe, followed the instuctions excactly and used your cottage cheese filling. It was a lovely meal and I served it with a salad.
