Sweet classic of Russian cuisine
Piroshki with apple jam is a classic among sweet buns in Russia, along with piroshki with carrots. Probably because people always have enough apples from their own garden and make jam from them.
You can make the sweet piroshki not only with apple jam, but with any jam. The Russian buns taste very delicious with strawberry, apricot or plum jam, for example. You can also try the recipe with blackcurrant jam.
Both homemade and store-bought jam is suitable. It is only important that it is firm, so that it does not flow out of the dough.
The filled dumplings taste delicious both hot and cold. You can take them on the go, for example, to work, university or hiking.
Stay fresh for long time
These apple piroshki stay fresh for quite a long time – fluffy and soft. To keep them fresh, wrap them in an air tight container**, and store them at room temperature, but in a place that’s not too warm. You can enjoy them for up to about a week.

Simple recipe with ordinary ingredients
The recipe for the sweet piroshki with apple jam, which you can find here at the end of the post in the recipe box, is pretty simple. For this you need only common ingredients that you may already have at home. The only thing that takes some time is the rising of the dough.
So, first you knead a soft yeast dough and let it rise for 1.5 hours.
Then you form buns filled with apple jam, let them rise for about 20 minutes and put them in the oven. After 20 minutes of baking, you can taste the sweet piroshki.
How to make piroshki with apple jam: tips and tricks
Use only room warm and lukewarm ingredients for the yeast dough so that it can rise quickly.
You can use dry yeast** instead of fresh yeast. For the recipe below you need 7 g of it.
You can leave out the rum in the dough. It makes the dough taste even more fluffy.
The amount of flour given in the recipe may vary. Add flour in batches until you get a soft dough. It should not be mushy, but also not too firm or dry.
When gluing edges of jam-filled dough together, be careful not to get jam on the edges. Also, glue the edges together tightly. Otherwise, the seam might come open in the oven, and the jam might spill out.
Instead of apple jam you can use any other jam. It must be firm, though. See my notes here above.
