Dough Ingredients:
2 eggs
200 grams water
little bit of salt
3-4 cups flour

Filling Ingredients:
2 cups cheese (a crumbly, white, mild cheese)
2 eggs
OR… you can use any filling ingredients you want

Mix dough ingredients together, starting with 3 cups of flour and adding more if necessary. Once worked to a pasta-like consistency, roll into 3 balls. Dough should be more firm than bread dough. Cover with light cloth and let rest 15 minutes.

Prepare filling ingredients. Mix eggs and cheese well.

On a flat, floury surface, roll dough to be thin, thin, thin. Cut into small squares, about 2×2 inches. Add a little filling to each square. Make into a triangle by smashing two opposite corners together. Make sure filling cannot leak out. If it doesn’t want to stick together, you need more flour on your hands. Either cook like that or connect the two points on the fold (hypotenuse) to look like a tied handkerchief.

Salt a pot of water and bring to a boil. Add coltunași and cook on medium for about 10-15 minutes.

Serve with your choice of sauce. Serves 5-6 people.

Pofta Bună.
