Germans of Russian descent call these tasty pastries Blachinda, Plachinda or Plachenda. Pumpkin turnovers can be found in German and Mexican kitchens this time of year. (This recipe is actually for Mexican-style, but is essentially the same as the German.) You can substitute ready-made pastry or even frozen puff pastry as well as canned pumpkin for the fresh in a pinch.
