Moms Ponchiki –(Pishki)- пышки Recipe

DSC_0239Main

As far as I remember, mom made these ponchiks all the time. We used to wake up in the cold winter mornings to the smell of mom’s ponchiks.  Mom would get up early in the morning and have big bowl of ponchiki ready for us.

My brother Alex loves them dipped in honey.  I prefer mine with jam and hot cup of tea.

I use this pastry cutter to cut with nice edges. 

 

 

 

 

 

You can order HERE if you wish.

Direction:

In a Kitchen Aid mixer bowl combine sugar and eggs, mix on low speed for 1-2 minutes; add buttermilk, tvorog, and vanilla extract. In a separate little bowl mix baking soda and vinegar (This will carbonate the soda so that you won’t taste it) and stir into the batter mixture.   Add flour in small amounts, mixing well after each addition to make soft  sticky dough. *


On a lightly floured surface, roll dough out to 1/4″ thickness and cut circles.

 

On the last picture I used a round shape cookie cutter or just use an espresso cup. ( My mom cuts them into squares and triangles. For that you just cut the rolled dough into 4″ x 4″ squares, and then cut diagonally to form triangles).

Add oil into a frying pan (about 1” in depth) and heat over medium heat.  Add your shaped dough and fry until golden brown on both sides, about 1 minute on each side.  Remove from oil onto paper towel to absorb excess oil.
Serve hot with your choice of jam, sour cream or dust lightly with powder sugar.
