Kaye Stevens' Pirohy (Baked Stuffed Pockets)
1 cup scalded milk
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 cake (or envelope) compressed yeast dissolved in 1/4 cup lukewarm water
2 eggs, 1 egg yolk beaten until light
1/4 cup melted butter
4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
Dissolve sugar and salt in scalded milk; cool until lukewarm. Add yeast, eggs, butter and flour, beating until smooth and gas bubbles form. Knead on lightly floured board until dough is elastic. Form dough into ball and place in lightly greased bowl. Cover, let rise until doubled in bulk (about 2 hours). Roll out dough on lightly floured board to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut 3-inch circles with glass or cookie cutter. Spoon 1 tablespoon filling on half of each circle; overlap other half, forming crescents. Seal edges. Let rise 30 minutes on greased, floured baking sheet. Brush lightly with egg yolk mixed with a little milk. Bake in 375 degree oven 25 minutes or until crisp and golden brown. Serve hot with side dishes of drawn butter or salted sour cream. Makes 34.
