Pelmeni and vareniki, new recipes for the dough

Perfect weather today to make delicious pelmeni with pork/ beef meat and 3 different types of vareniki ( pierogi) with mashed potatoes and meat, they will be served with mushroom, onions and bacon topping. Also vareniki with cherries and ricotta with cherries. Great time spent with kids and results- delicious meal!

My new recipe for the pelmeni dough: 1 egg, pinch of salt and 2 tbsp oil, mix it. Add 2.5-3 cups of flour, 1 cup boiled water, kneed the dough and leave it covered for 30-40 min. Ready pelmeni serve with butter, vinegar and sour cream.

For vareniki: 2 eggs, 2 tbsp sour cream, 1 cup milk, 3.5-4 cups of flour, pinch of salt. For the filling: 350-400g ground meat, cooked. I used beef, pork and little bacon. Also mashed potatoes from 2 big potatoes (around 2 cups), salt, garlic powder and pepper to taste. The topping: fried onions, bacon and mushrooms.

Also made new vareniki with ricotta and whipped cream cheese and added cherries with a little bit of sugar. Instead of cherries you can use blueberries.
