Kylie and Kendall Jenner Make Traditional Armenian Delacy ‘Beeshee’ – a Kardashian Family Holiday Tradition

Kylie Jenner, the 26-year-old reality TV sensation, offered a glimpse into her family's cherished holiday customs by preparing a traditional Armenian dish known as 'beeshee' or 'bishi.' Kylie took to her Instagram account last Saturday, ahead of Christmas, joined by her older sister, Kendall, to explore the creation of 'beeshee,' an Armenian dish typically enjoyed during breakfast or brunch.

The entrepreneurial powerhouse shared moments from her holiday celebration and disclosed that it was their first attempt at crafting the revered beeshee. With determination, she expressed her desire to make their older Armenian half-sisters proud in the caption accompanying the post.

However, as they embarked on the unfamiliar task of making beeshee, doubts emerged. Kendall, the model sister, candidly commented on the less-than-ideal appearance of their initial beeshee dough, expressing concern that they might have unintentionally dampened the holiday spirit: 'This doesn't look good. We might have ruined Christmas.'

Resourceful as ever, the duo opted for a do-over, playfully adding a digital Grinch filter to Kendall's face. Their perseverance led them to search for a blanket to cover the dough. With Kendall standing on Kylie's leg to reach a high closet shelf, the sisters' determination and collaboration shone through.

After their dedicated efforts, the Jenner sisters delicately covered their dough-to-be with the blanket, and Kendall proudly presented the 'beeshee baby' seeking approval from her Armenian sisters.

Describing the delicacy, beeshee/bishi resembles a thin, crispy fried pancake lavishly garnished with sugar. Its light and fluffy texture makes it an excellent breakfast option, suggesting it to be paired with maple syrup or confectioners' sugar, or perhaps both.

A culinary treasure in Armenian tradition, beeshee, also known as Armenian Zeppoli or Bishi, holds nostalgic significance for many. Its preparation involves a batter that can be prepared the night before and left to rise in the refrigerator, allowing for a delightful morning treat.

As the sisters immersed themselves in this culinary tradition, their journey to master the art of making beeshee signified a heartwarming embrace of Armenian heritage and the continuation of a cherished family ritual.
