Varenikis/Varenikas, Blueberry (D)
Source:, Olga Timohina's collection
Yield: 56 vareniki

3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
3 egg yolks
1/2 cup cold water

3 to 3-1/2 cups blueberries
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 to 1 teaspoons cinnamon
3/4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 to 2 egg whites, lightly beaten (for sealing the vareniki)
2 cups sour cream for dipping

Make Dough:
Combine all dough 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.

Roll out dough about 1/8" thick and cut into 3" circles.

Prepare the pan of boiling water for cooking the varenikis.

Make Filling and Assembly:
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 tablespoon of blueberries. Fold, seal and cook in boiling water as soon as you can (they are done when they float). Cook as needed. Serve hot with sour cream for dipping.
