Recipe for Ukrainian Cherry Dumplings


2 cup all-purpose flour; sifted
1 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1/2 cup water
1 egg white

1 1/2 cup canned pitted sour red cherries, dr; ained
1 to 3 tbs sugar


Put flour and salt in a large bowl. Make a well in the center of mixture and add eggs. Stir in enough water to make a stiff dough. Knead on a floured board. Shape into a ball and let stand 1 hr. Roll out very thin on floured board. Cut into small rounds, about 4 inches in diameter. Place 1 spoonful of the fruit filling on the lower half of each circle. Brush edges with egg white, slightly beaten. Flood pastry over to form a half-circle, and press edges together. Drop, a few at a time, into a large kettle of boiling water and cook briskly for 15 to 20 mins., or until dumplings come to the surface. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain. Serve warm. Serve with warm cherry juice and thick cream, if desired. Makes about 16.


Put cherries and sugar in a small saucepan and simmer for 5 mins. Cool.
