It’s Finland’s independence day today, so I’m again sharing my favourite Finnish pies with you. These are savoury Karelian pies or pastries. The filling is rice pudding and the crust is a mix of rye and wheat flours. The crust is very similar to a pizza dough, it’s just rolled out very thinly for these pies. In my childhood I often made these pies with my grandmother, so she taught me also the method of closing the dough in a pretty way on the top. I thought that these turned out really nice and I scoffed them all in no time. I also made some with potato mash filling, which are my partner’s favourites.
