Yeast Free Hand Pies with Cowberry and Cheese filling. Pärmivabad pohla- juustupirukad

This recipe is suitable for all people who do not like or have not time or skills to use and prepare yeast dough.

Very easy to prepare.

I used sweet filling and combined cowberries, nuts and cheese. I love savoury-sweet and sour combination. Nuts give texture and crustiness.
You are free to change it, of course. I would suggest for example carrot filling. Find the recipe from my blog.pohlajuustupirukas (9)

Did you know
The coldest months in Estonia are January and February, where temperatures can drop down to -35C. The coldest temperature ever measured in Estonia is -43.5C, recorded in eastern Estonia on 17 January 1940.

Estonian Kama roll with Cowberries. Kama ja pohlarull

he secret of Estonia is Kama. Kama is Estonian traditional finely milled flour mixture.

Historically kama was a non-perishable, easy-to-carry food that could be quickly fashioned into a stomach-filling snack by rolling it into butter or lard; it didn’t require baking, as it was already roasted. Today Kama is a perfect summer dish. Just add some fresh or fermented milk and sugar or salt, mix, and ready! How to do kama, find out it here.
And what is interesting. In Estonian Kama means in slang “stuff, things” and the same time Kama means ” drugs”…:)

This cake is So Estonian:) Bitter-sweet taste of Kama is complemented with sweet and sour cowberries.
I have been studying many dictionaries to find out which is the right translation: cowberries or lingonberry. And still, I do not know the right answer.
These berries grow in a pine forest, They want and like the sunny and dry place. Usually, there are some wild blueberries and Lactarius Rufus are in neighbours.
anyway, no difference what name these berries has. Important is that cowberries are delicious, healthy and suits practically in every savoury dish and in sweet cakes.

Layered Dessert with Rye Bread. Taani talutĂĽdruk

talutydruk1 (1)

This is a very very simple dessert, but amazingly delicious.

In Estonia we call this dessert ” Taani talutĂĽdruk”.
In direct translation ” Taani talutĂĽdruk” means ” Danish farm girl”. Æblekage med ristet rasp/Gammeldags æblekage.

This dessert is very popular in Estonia because of the taste and simplicity.

Danes serve this with apple jam. Taani talutĂĽdruk in Estonian style is with cowberry or cranberry or black currant jam.
For more better result we add some Kama  in to the curd cream to get more flavour.
On my photo I used cowberry- apple jam and Estonian rye bread.
