  1. Place the potatoes into a large pot and cover with salted water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and allow to steam dry for a minute or two. Heat 1/4 cup of vegetable oil in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the onion; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Combine potatoes and onions in a large bowl; season with 2 teaspoons of salt, pepper, sugar, and garlic. Mash until smooth; set aside.
  2. Preheat an oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Beat eggs, 1/2 cup of vegetable oil, warm water, and 1 teaspoon of salt. Gradually stir in flour. When the dough has pulled together, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 8 minutes. Divide the dough into thirds and roll each piece out to about 9x13-inches. Slice the rolled dough in half lengthwise, then spread the potato mixture down the center of each strip. Roll each strip around the filling and gently press to seal. Repeat with the remaining dough and filling to end with six logs.
  4. Cut each log into 1-inch slices and place cut side down on the prepared baking sheet. Gently press the edges of the dough toward the center of the potato mixture to form a bun. Beat egg yolks and milk together in a small bowl. Brush each knish with the the egg yolk mixture.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, 35 to 45 minutes.

This is my recipe. I just wanted to let people know that the dough in this recipe is not of the flaky pastry variety. This is more of a very thin strudel-like casing. If you are looking for th...

The flavor was excellent, however it did not look like yours. Yours looks like you wraped the dough around the potato mixture individualy, and pinched together on top. Where did I go wrong? Y...

Excellent. To see photos of these being prepared, visit my facebook page (look up Izenberg's Catering - in Conshohocken, PA). When there, click on photos and look for them.

This is an excellent, easy recipe! The filling is simple yet flavorful, and you can easily create variations by adding cheese, meat, or other vegetables. The pastry was easy to handle, cooked ...

Well I was in a rush to make these last night for a potluck and they turned out great. Thanks for a simple recipe! My Jewish and vegetarian friends liked them a lot. I used Irish butter instead ...

These were fantastic! I made them for a New York-themed potluck at work. No one here had eaten a knish before, but everyone enjoyed them. The dough is thin and delicious and the potato fillin...

The filling was amazing. That being said, I've talked with my fully raised Jewish grandmother and more than a few devout Jews who keep kosher and they've all agreed that the casing is all wrong....

I have never had traditional knish, so I am not sure how close to that, this is. I can say that even the picky eaters loved it.
