  1. What an amazing recipe! Its best for when you have friends and family around to appreciate your hard work. Love recipes with step by step pictures! The filling looks almost like a meatball style mixture…very appealing indeed.

    1. Thank you Susan:))) This is a really great recipe. I make pelmeni with same filling and dough minus the vodka. It taste scrumptious:-)

  2. Just like a spanish empanada but the vodka addition makes it Russian.
    A splash of vodka always is a great welcome addition to a good recipe. ;)
    This looks delicious and will definitely try it.
    Love your blog and the step by step photos.
