Vareniki with Blueberrys


Serves/Makes:4 people or 2 of me! (:->)>

  • Dough:
  • 3 cups (700 ml) all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp (5 ml) salt
  • 3 egg yolks, save the whites
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) cold water
  • Filling:
  • 3-3 1/2 cup (125 ml) blueberries, fresh
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) sugar
  • 1/2 1 tsp (5 ml) cinnamon
  • 3/4 tbsp (10 ml) all-purpose flour
  • *******************
  • 1-2 egg whites, lightly beaten (for sealing the vareniki)
  • 2 cups (475 ml) sour cream, for dipping
  • Combine all the ingredients in the bowl of a electric mixer with the dough hook in place. Mix for 1 minute at low speed, then raise the speed to moderate and beat for 2 minutes; the dough should be well blended, smooth, and elastic.
  • However you knead the dough, form it into 2 balls, dust lightly with all-purpose flour, cover tightly with plastic wrap, and allow to rest for 30 minutes or more in a refrigerator. (Over night is best)
  • Roll out dough about 1/8 inch thick and cut into 3-inch circles with a glass or a cookie cutter.
  • Prepare the pan of boiling water for cooking the Varenikis.
  • Just before filling the rounds, lightly toss the blueberries with the sugar and cinnamon.
  • Spread on a plate and dust with the flour.
  • Fill each round with a scant tbsp of blueberries.
  • Fold, seal ( put egg whites lightly beaten on the inside edge to help seal the vareniki )( I also fork the edge myself).
  • Cook in pot of salted boiling water as soon as you can (they are done when they float).
  • Gently remove from pot with a slotted spoon.. Cook in as needed.
  • Serve HOT with sour cream for dipping.
  • Best if one cooks and the others eat. My record in one sitting is 27 (:-)> )
  • Uncooked can be frozen for future feast.
  • Just drop frozen in boiling water.
"Varenyky are a filled dumpling that originated in China some 4000-5000 years ago. They came to the Russians by way of the ancient Silk Road caravan traders & later the Mongols. When cooked by poaching they are called varenyky. They can contain meat, cheese, potatoes, sauerkraut, or fruits. They may be served as an appetizer, a main dish, a side dish or a dessert depending upon filling &/or quantity."
