Varenyky Dough: (1) (Pyrohy)
5 cups flour 1 tsp. salt 2 tbsp. butter (soft) 1 cup evaporated milk 1/2 cup water(more or less as needed)
Combine flour and salt in a large bowl, forming a well in the middle. Add butter and milk and mix lightly until flour is absorbed. Add a little warm water if needed. Knead until dough sticks together, cover and allow to rest for a few minutes, then knead until smooth. Cover and set aside. The dough should be somewhat soft, since more flour is added as dough is rolled out. Or, in processor, combine flour, salt, and butter and stir a few times. With machine running, add liquids until a ball forms. Allow to rest a few minutes, then process until smooth. Place dough in a lightly oiled bowl, turn, and cover for about 30 minutes before rolling out. It may be wrapped in plastic and refrigerated for a day or so, brought to room temperature, and then rolled out. Place a fourth of the dough on floured work surface; cover remaining dough. Roll into a circle, away from the center, turn over, flour lightly, and roll again to about 1/8 inch thickness. Run a hand under the bottom to loosen it. With a 3 inch biscuit cutter or wineglbutt, cut rounds. Place a tablespoon of filling to one side of each round, flip over other hlf, and press edges together, sealing in filling. Place dumlings on a floured tray; keep dumplings covered with a towel.

Varenyky dough (6)
2 cups flour 1 teaspoon salt 1 egg or 2 egg yolks 1/2 cup water, about
Mix the flour with the salt in a deep bowl. Add the egg and enough water to make a medium soft dough. Knead on a floured board until smooth. Too much kneading will toughen the dough. Divide the dough into 2 parts. Cover and let it stand for at least 10 minutes. Prepare filling.

To serve: varenyky may be poached, pan-fried, or steamed, serves as an accompaniment to meats, or served with sour cream, chopped sauteed onions, or fried bacon with a little bacon fat.
