Khrushchev dough (Russian: хрущёвское тесто) was the result of introducing flourrationing in the Soviet Union after a crop failure, which led to the food irregularities in 1963, under Nikita Khrushchev.[clarification needed] Products made from the Khrushchev dough were called Khrushchev loaves or Khrushchev pies. The Khrushchev pie was made by extracting the loaf pulp, injecting filling, and baking in an oven. In 1963–1964, that pie became common on New Year tables. The color of the Khrushchev loaves in Leningrad was nearly blue. In some recipes from Runet, the dough was supposed to be long-lasting.
