       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
   following.
   
   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.
