Filling: 

1 # boiled cabbage
½ # dry cottage cheese
1 minced onion
2 Tablespoons butter

salt & pepper to taste

 

Dough: 

2 eggs
3 and ¼ cups flour
dash of salt
¼ cup water
3 Tablespoons butter
3 Tablespoons bread crumbs

 

   Drain cabbage and chop coarsely ( a blender works well here )  Combine with the cottage cheese. Lightly sauté the onion in the butter.  Combine with cabbage-cheese mixture and season to taste.

    To make dough, combine the eggs, flour and salt. If necessary, add a little water to get desired consistency to knead a smooth, loose dough. Roll out very thinly and cut into 3 inch squares.  Place a teaspoon of the filling on each square. Fold over to form a triangle and pinch the edges together.

    Cook several at a time in a large pot of boiling, salted water for 5 minutes, or until they rise to the top.  Remove with a slotted spoon and keep warm until all are finished.

    Drizzle the buttered bread crumbs over the pierogi just before serving.
