A recipe for Macedonian writings that are widely talked about

Pishie is a traditional Macedonian breakfast. The recipe for the writings remained a legacy from our grandmothers, which is passed down from generation to generation.

Apart from breakfast, pies are a great idea for dinner or snacks, and they are very easy to prepare - you need 20 minutes. You can eat them in combination with cheese, yellow cheese, marmalade…


- about 500 g of smooth flour
- 300 ml of water (lukewarm)
- 50 ml of oil
- half a cube of yeast (fresh)
- half a sachet of baking powder
- 1 teaspoon of baking soda
- 1 teaspoon of sugar
- 1 teaspoon of salt


Put the yeast in lukewarm water and sugar to rise, then mix the remaining ingredients and knead the dough. Knead the dough from all the listed ingredients and gradually add the flour.

Knead a nice, soft and smooth dough which you will grease with oil and cover with a stretch foil and leave it to rise for about 1 hour.

From the dough, break into pieces and make balls. Roll out each ball of dough with slightly oiled hands.

Put the peas in hot oil to fry.

While frying on one side, sprinkle hot oil on the other side with a spoon (that way the inside is hollow), and then turn it over on the other side to fry. Take them out on a napkin to soak up excess fat… even though they are not greasy at all.
Peaches are neutral in taste, so you can eat them in salty or mild form - if desired.
