Baked piroshki

Great appetizer

5 medium potatoes, peeled, boiled, mashed
1 cup milk
4 egg yolks, beaten
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda for potatoes
4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda, for flour

Sauerkraut - chop, squeeze dry, discard liquid
Pork Fat
1 cup chopped onion
Pepper, and salt to taste
1 lb. butter, melted
Fry pork fat and chopped onion, together

When you mash potatoes, make sure there are absolutely no lumps. Mix potatoes, egg yolks, and the
first tsp of baking soda together. Add 1/4 tsp salt. Add alternately, flour and milk, making flour last
one to alternate. Remove from bow at this point to a floured surface and knead until smooth. Roll out 
with rolling pin, 1/8" thick, cut with 2" cookie cutter. Put dough in the palm of your hand, fill with
filling, be sure that the filling is off the edges, wet with water and seal pastry. Bake in oven at 350F,
until golden brown. When you take pirohis from oven, let cool for 5 minutes, then wet your hands with
water, pick up each pirohi, and coat with water from hands, and set aside in pot,  Pour melted butter on 
top of pot, shake pot and set aside for a bit.
