Ingredients

2 cups flour
2-4 eggs
1 tbsp butter
1/2 tsp salt

Boil 4 potatoes (2 cups mashed). Drain.
While piping hot, add 1/2 lb grated cheddar cheese.
Cool and fill squares.

Combine 1/2 lb dry cottage cheese with all moisture squeezed out; 1 beaten egg. (2 tbsp sugar and vanilla optional.)

SAUERKRAUT
Drain 2 cups sauerkraut and chop coarsely. Brown in oil and season to taste.

Procedure

Mix flour, eggs, salt and butter to make dough. (If dough is too soft, the seems will not stick.) Knead until smooth. Divide into 2 portions. Roll out 1 portion, and cut into 2-inch squares. Place small ice-cream scoop of filling on each square. Fold in half to make a triangle. Pinch edges closed. Follow same methods for remaining dough.
