RICH DOUGH FOR VARENYKY (Pyrohy)
MyCookbook Recipe Database
MyCookbook Member: Olha
Recipe Category: Pasta
Recipe Preparation Level: moderate
The following recipe gives rich and tender varenyky.
1/2 cup cold mashed potatoes
2 tablespoons shortening
2 egg yolks
1/2 cup lukewarm water
1 3/4 flour
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup flour
Mix the first 3 ingredients thoroughly. Add the water and beat well. Sift 1 3/4 cups of flour with the cream of tartar and salt, and then stir into the first mixture. This will form a very soft dough.
Add 1/4 cup of flour in 2 tablespoon portions until the dough no longer sticks to the hand.
The dough should be very soft. If some of the flour is left, use it for flouring the board.
Knead lightly, cover, and let it stand for 10 minutes.
Roll quite thin, cut into the desired shape and form varenyky, using any favorite filling.
For fillings; look under Olha's Filled Dumplings (Varenyky).
