Yesterday, my friend Lisa shared with me the gift of Knish. I didn’t know what these indulgent little packages were before yesterday, so we’re going 0 to 60 here, but now that I’ve learned of, made, and eaten them, its only fair to share the gift of Knish with you!
If you are unfamiliar, a knish is essentially pastry-wrapped mashed potatoes. Ok, now you’re paying attention!
I followed the recipe almost exactly as written by Smitten Kitchen, who fortuitously posted a recipe for knish just a bit before we decided to make them, so I don’t feel it would be fair to re-write it. Instead, I’ll defer to Deb, with many thanks!
And thanks to Lisa for bringing Matzo ball Chicken Soup. It was made with home-slow-cooked broth, so the flavor… just tastes like someone loves you.
As a final note, it occurs to me that the pastry used for the knish could be used to wrap a myriad other things. More of that to come, I’m sure.
