Russian Cabbage Pie

Russian Cabbage Pie

I finally managed to prepare the perfect cabbage pie - soft and fine crust perfectly matching the braised cabbage. I took the dough recipe from a Russian forum and I thought of using it for this pie. I really liked it, so I recommend you prepare it too.


White flour
1.5 cups
100 g
Active dry yeast
4 g
0.5 tsp

50 ml
Cow milk

White onion
1 piece
Sunflower oil
50 ml
1 tbsp
for the filling
0.5 tsp
Boiled eggs

Add this to the flour and butter mixture and knead into an elastic and soft dough. If necessary, add a little more milk or flour - in case the dough doesn't have the desired consistency. Divide and shape into two balls, a larger and a smaller one.
