When I visited some friends in Finland a while *ahem* ago, I remember eating LOTS of yummy things, but I especially remember eating Karelian pies with egg butter. Does anyone know how to make these? Now that I live in Minnesota I find myself thinking of Finland a lot...is it the snow? The large population of Finns? Who knows! But it's got me craving some yummy Karelian pies! Any recipes? Tips? Ideas? Want to send me some pies? LOL (also happy to hear places to get them in the twin cities, I'm not a great cook!)
 Thanks!

Karelian pies are my favourite national food Smiley  My grandmother makes the best pies in the world but I think that every person in eastern Finland says that  Wink  Here's a recipe I found:
http://davesgarden.com/cookbook/viewentry.php?rid=1770. Remember to make the "sheets" thin as possible!

This may be a dumb question but Is there rye flour in the USA? My impression is that you guys prefer white flours ..Rye is more healthy.I wish that I could send you some pies but I think they would be damaged after all the travelling  Wink

Thanks! You could just send me your Grandma instead!  Grin We do have rye flour, it's not as popular here as in Finland but I think it's the same. I loved my month in your country, it's beautiful!

butting in to say that you can get rye flour here--my dad makes swedish rye bread (aka limpa bread) all the time using it. I know that Bob's Red Mill makes some (http://www.bobsredmill.com, search for rye flour), but it might also be sold under the name "graham flour"


Those Karelian pies look really good--I'm going to have to try it!
