This is my recipe. I just wanted to let people know that the dough in this recipe is not of the flaky pastry variety. This is more of a very thin strudel-like casing. If you are looking for the flaky pastry type dough, you could roll out a thawed puff pastry sheet and use that. :) Oh, and you really don't need 1/4 cup of vegetable oil for the onions...I think that's a typo. Just use enough oil to saute them.
This is an excellent, easy recipe! The filling is simple yet flavorful, and you can easily create variations by adding cheese, meat, or other vegetables. The pastry was easy to handle, cooked well, and tasted delicious. The one problem was that the filling bubbled out the bottom and sides during cooking, so seal them nice and tight, and leave a vent in the top. I will definately be making these again!
The flavor was excellent, however it did not look like yours. Yours looks like you wraped the dough around the potato mixture individualy, and pinched together on top. Where did I go wrong? Your instructions were a bit ambiguious
These came out perfectly! I was so impressed. I am typically not good at making any kind of dough, but I followed exactly and it came out the perfect texture and thickness. It was also very pliable, and I found it easy that once I cut the logs into pieces, to pull the edges together and kind of wrap them around the bottoms to form a ball. I know it's not kosher, but I added cheese and butter to mine and I thought the potato mixture was some of the best I ever had. I think I will start using it for my normal mashed potato recipe.
The filling was amazing. That being said, I've talked with my fully raised Jewish grandmother and more than a few devout Jews who keep kosher and they've all agreed that the casing is all wrong. I'd suggest using a casing more flaky/buttery with club soda and margarine for a more savory and delicious taste. This casing will only taste good with intense meat flavors, imo.
These were fantastic! I made them for a New York-themed potluck at work. No one here had eaten a knish before, but everyone enjoyed them. The dough is thin and delicious and the potato filling is surprisingly flavorful for something so simple. Thanks for the recipe!
Well I was in a rush to make these last night for a potluck and they turned out great. Thanks for a simple recipe! My Jewish and vegetarian friends liked them a lot. I used Irish butter instead of veg oil and served them with Gorgonzola cheese sauce. Yummie.
I made this recipe three times and I think it is a really good one! They taste very authentic. I did make some changes though. I used two fresh garlic cloves, chopped fine and added them to the onions once they were translucent. I used the sugar to caramelize the onions rather than add it directly to the potato mixture and added some chicken stock for smoother mashed potatoes. Finally, after I rolled the dough I cut it into squares and put a 2-tbsp scoop of the potato into each square and pulled the dough around it so it looked like a beggar's purse. I found this method much easier than cutting the logs into 1-inch pieces. I plan to make these again very soon!
