Joy’s brothers and sisters were always so excited when her mom literally slaved making this recipe for the eleven of them including her Mom and Dad. It took her hours but they all appreciated her hard work even though they were gobbled up faster than she could make them. Bless you Mom! Dough 3 eggs 2tbls water (if needed) 1 teas salt 2 cups flour Filling 11/2 lbs hamburger meat 11/2 teas salt ½ teas pepper 2 eggs 2 tbsps finely chopped onion Beat eggs thoroughly add salt, water and flour to make a soft workable dough (Joy noticed she needed a lot more flour) knead the dough until it doesn’t stick anymore. Let it rest after dividing it into 3 or four parts. The dough can be refrigerated at this point. Prepare meat filling by mixing filling ingredients together. (Hint: you always want to add salt sparingly and microwave and taste it is always easier to add than take away) Roll dough out to about 1/8” thick and use a glass to cut 3” diameter pieces place some filling into one and leave about 3/4 ” space around the edge use beaten egg with a little water as a glue to stick another disc on top and a fork to press around to seal. Repeat …….Boil in water (uncovered) flavored with beef or chicken bouillon for about 45 min or until dough is cooked. (Don’t over crowd pot) Serve with sour cream….Yummmm!!
