I love this recipe, just like all other russian children, I grew up eating these! I also fry onions in olive oil until they are golden and sometimes a little bit burnt and add them to mashed potatoes, if you use the oil from frying the onions then you really dont need to add milk or butter whem mashing the potatoes. Another filling is sour cherries, i don't think anyone mentioned that, from what i know the traditional fillings for pirozhki that you can buy at a russian store is meat, potatoes, cabbage, or cherries, sometimes i'll also add 18% fat cottage cheese with a little of my favorite (or whatever i have in the pantry) jam inside.
