Recipe Request: Knishes!

Recommended Posts

I miss knishes so bad... The baked kind, not the fried kind you get from a NYC hot dog stand, although either would do. I'm sure it's not hard to make the potato filling... But I'm not sure what kind of gluten-free dough to use.

Any ideas? Has anyone tried to make a gluten-free knish before?

I'm convinced it can be done.

Don't know if this is possible. Anxious to see if anyone has a recipe.

I wonder if you could use thinnly rolled chebe bread dough for the dough? Mmm...knishes are so yummy! I would try it, but I don't have a good base recipe...


Alright, don't worry even if things end up a bit too heavy

We'll all float on, alright

Well we'll float on good news is on the way...

I was thinking a gluten-free pizza dough might be the right consistency.

OK, I hereby make a promise: I WILL figure out a way to make us knishes. You have my word. It may take a while, but I will do it!

Chebe is a whole line of gluten-free bread mixes made from tapioca flour that are actual doughs, not batters. I make pizza with them often. Do you have a recipe for knish that you used to use, and if so, may I have it? I'll try, too!!!

That sounds perfect! I will definitely try that. Nope, no knish recipe - But I have an honorary uncle who owned a knish bakery (yes, that's all he made!) for years and I will eventually try to get the recipe from him.

To answer the other poster's question:

I nearly had a heart-attack when I saw they compared Knishes to Hot Pockets, though! Oy gevalt!

A knish bakery...how cool!

OMG, I can't believe anyone could compare a knish to a hot pocket!! My grandmother would turn over in her grave!

I was gonna say I would ask my dad for a recipe, but I think your uncle has it covered. LOL!!

Have you ever had a sweet potato knish?!!! Mmmmmm!!! Although I love them all. Potato (round and square), spinach. Ok, I officially miss knishes.

If you can recreate knishes I am so having a Blockbuster!! I don't know if this is something my dad invented or if other kosher restaurants have it. Square knish cut in half, baked with mustard, grilled salami and sauerkraut. Yummers!!!

I think the hot pocket analogy is instructional for someone who has never heard of any of the other types.

I was in a classroom, and the subject of savory pies came up. Every single one of the kids was going "Ew, ew, ew...gross!", like they'd never eaten hot pockets or pizza.

I wouldn't know a knish if it bit me, but I saw someone once make... I think it was Latke's with rice paper, you know the stuff they use as a wrapper for asian cooking, on Food TV. No wait, it was wonton wrappers. But maybe rice paper would work.

Nancy - Hm, That doesn't make any sense, as latkes are potato pancakes, made of potatos and eggs. They don't involve any kind of paper or wrapper. I'm wondering what food you might be thinking of... Hm...

I wish I could find all-rice wonton wrappers! I love wontons and miss them.

I spoke to someone at the Manishewitz Company and she told me that their Passover Potato Knish Mix is Gluten Free. Their site has a whole section for Gluten Free (in the health section) and I was thrilled to see that many of the items that I always loved are included. I'm going to be able to eat real food! They've even got Gluten Free vinegar and ketchup.

Wow! That is too exciting! I hope they are good. I will definitely see if my store has them, if not they will surely have them around Passover since it looks to be a K-for-P item.

I am also planning to work on making my own, using Chebe dough. Will keep you all posted. Thanks for pointing out the gluten-free section on the Manischewitz page!

I posted a separate thread about this but figured I should follow up on this old thread in case anyone's following it... If you try it please let me know how it turns out.
