Piryshky, deliciously comforting appetizers, are made frequently in Eastern European cuisine, in various shapes and sizes. Growing up in a Western Ukrainian family, we made many variations of piryshky, changing the filing to fit a specific holiday or occasion. These two-bite appetizers, with the Mediterranean twist, and a little kick, is my variation on a beloved family culinary tradition. They will disappear quickly at any holiday party, or large family gathering. They may be eaten straight from the over, or made in advance, and warmed up in the last minute.
