Jennie Grossinger's Knishes- meat, pareve, dairy

Yield: 24 servings

2 1/2 c Sifted flour

1 ts Baking powder

1/2 ts Salt

2 Eggs

2/3 c Salad oil

2 tb Water

Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into a bowl. Make a Well in the center and drop the eggs, oil and water into it. Work into the flour mixture with the hand and knead Until smooth.

There are two ways to fill the knishes. In either case, divide the dough in two and roll as thin as possible. Brush with oil. Now you can spread the filling on one side Of the dough and roll it up, like a jelly roll. Cut into 5 1/2 inch slices.

DOUGH:

Place in an oiled baking sheet cut side down. Press down lightly to flatten. Or you can cut the rolled dough in 3-inch circles. Place a tablespoon of the filling on each; draw the edges together and pinch firmly. Place on an oiled baking sheet, pinched edges up. In either case, bake in a 375 degree oven 35 minutes or until browned.

Makes about 24.
