This is my mother Nadia's version of Rollkuchen that my family grew up with. We call them Pishky. There are some variations in the ingredients.
4 C. flour
2 C. sour cream
3 eggs (beaten)
1 tsp. salt
3/4 C. sugar
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 C. orange juice
vegetable oil to fry the Pishky in
Make well in center of flour. Mix sour cream, beaten eggs, salt, sugar, and orange juice. First blend the soda in a tablespoon of hot water then add it to the wet ingredients. Mix into flour and knead the dough. Roll out the dough on a floured surface. Cut in strips. Then cut strips on the diagonal about 4″ long and cut a slit in the center of the 4″ length. Fold the top of the piece through the hole and up again. Fry in oil until golden brown on both sides. Before serving sprinkle with powdered sugar.
My kids loved to have these hot out of the pan when they would come in from playing in the snow.
These are great right out of the pan and for a few hours but after that they aren’t as wonderful. Make small batches that you’ll gobble up quickly is my recommendation. The other thing you can do if you have more than you want to eat right away is to make a french toast casserole for breakfast with the leftovers.
