The joy that is potato knish...

I have a new Sunday morning must do!

I stopped by Cheskies early this morning to pick up some victuals. I saw a pile of potato knishes. Now potato knishes are a major comfort food for me, and no matter how busy, stressed or not-feeling-like-eating I get, I can always force down a potato knish. Mashed potato in a pastry shell? How can you not like this??

So I asked for 1/2 a dozen, and the nice lady ignored the pile of knishes and went back to the baking area, returning with 6 piping hot fresh out of the oven knishes. I couldn't resist, I had to have one right away. It was inhaled within seconds. I have never felt more like a vacuum cleaner in my life. YUM! Soft, pastry shell, hot, smooth mash potato filling, toasted sesame seeds adding a subtle nutty accent. A perfect food to eat on a cool sunny autumn morning!

I have never had the pleasure of eating a warm fresh knish. My love of knish is based on cold, older knish. So you can imagine that this experience was truly eye and stomach opening. This thing is so yummy, it would be worth lurking around Cheskies on a Sunday morning just to have a chance to try this knish fresh out of the oven.

Reminder, Cheskies is closed on Saturdays.
