Potato Bourekas

Potato BourekasStuffed pastry hand pies

Peel potatoes. In a large pot, boil potatoes in water for about twenty to thirty minutes, or until soft. Drain. Allow to cool. In a bowl, mash potatoes with a hand-mixer or manual potato masher. To prepare filling, mix cooled mashed potatoes with onion, garlic, one egg, melted margarine, salt and pepper. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Divide puff pastry into 5-inch squares. Place a heaping tablespoon of filling in each square. Dampen edges of pastry squares with water, and then fold in half diagonally to form triangular pastries. Pinch edges together to seal filling inside. Brush tops with egg, and then sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake at 375-degrees F for about thirty minutes, or until golden in color. Serve.
