New York Knish


  • 6 large potatoes, peeled.
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons butter.
  • 1/4 minced onion.
  • 3 tablespoons chicken broth or vegetable broth.
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, or more to taste.
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper, or more to taste.
  • Chives or red pepper flakes to taste or seasoning.
  • 6 sheets phyllo dough.


  • Boil potatoes until tender, about 15-20 minutes.
  • Mash in a large basin.
  • Sauté the onion in 1 1/2 tablespoons of the butter, until translucent and soft not brown.
  • Add to mashed potatoes with broth, salt, pepper and spices.
  • Mix well.
  • Melt remaining butter.
  • Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Layer 3 sheets of phyllo dough and cut in half. Repeat with remaining 3 sheets.
  • Spoon 1 cup of potato mixture on each section of phyllo, mould into a large ball and position at one end of strip of dough.
  • Roll ball along the length of phyllo, folding dough over bottom of filling and leaving some filling showing through the top.
  • (Trim and remove excess dough.) Brush melted butter over edges of knish to close the seams and press down onto an un-greased baking sheet.
  • Do again with remaining ingredients.
  • Cook in the oven 30-40 minutes, until golden brown.
