Blini (pancakes) are a staple of the Russian cuisine. They can be made in different ways: with milk, buttermilk, whey or simply water. Some recipes include eggs, others are eggless but contain yeast (these are typically made during Lent).
These crescents are so delicate and delicious. All the recipes I’ve seen before recommended letting the dough rest in the fridge for a couple of hours after mixing. What they fail to mention is that such dough would be really hard to roll out...
You can use just about any kind of fish for the filling of these pies, as long as you like the taste of it. And these pies are perfect for Lent – they’re probably the tastiest of all Lenten pies.
First prepare the dough.
