      Title: Veranecki (pillows)
 Categories: Russian, Dumplings, Cheese, Cottage, Noodles
      Yield: 1 Servings
      3 c  Flour
    3/4 ts Baking powder
  1 1/2 ts Salt
  1 1/2    8 oz. glasses COLD water
      1 lb Dry cottage cheese sm curd
    1/2 ts Salt
      1    Egg
  Add enough water to make a soft noodle like dough. Knead until well
  mixed. Divide dough into 2 balls. Set one aside. Roll into large
  circle about 1/8/ inch thick. Cut into 3 inch squares. Fill with the
  Mix together well.
  When filling "Pillows", make sure you place 1 tsp of cottage cheese
  mixture in dead center of dough square being VERY careful you don't
  get any cheese on the edge. You'll NEVER get the little suckers to
  seal!!! Any way, they should come out looking like little pillows.
  Pinch edges closed with your fingers. Another tip...don't roll the
  dough out TOO thin or else you will get lot's of leaks.
  Boil pillow in large kettle to which a tsp of salt has been added. It
  would be a good idea to not cook more than 5 or 6 at a time lest they
  stick together on the kettle. The pillows will be done when they rise
  to the top and puff up.  They also take on a yellowish cast (about 7
  mins. per batch). Remove from pot with a slotted spoon very
  carefully!!! Place them in a bowl with a stick of butter (don't even
  attempt this recipe if you try to use low fat healthy junk!!!). Serve
  hot with salt and pepper to taste.
  Another variation is to fill with black cherries. Cook and butter as
  with the cottage cheese pillows. Sprinkle with granulated sugar.
