Tarragon Cheese Dumplings

Another from the email in the "to try" file!

Tarragon Cheese Dumplings

1 pound dry cottage cheese, drained
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg, beaten
1/8 cup bacon, finely chopped
1 tablespoon dried tarragon, crushed

Place dry cottage cheese in bowl and break up pieces by hand until
fine. Add egg, salt, bacon and tarragon and mix well.

In a large bowl place about 2 cups flour and add about 3/4 to 1 cup
water mix by hand until well incorporated and not too sticky. May
need more or less flour or water.

Take a small ball of dough and flatten into a round and fill with
tarragon cheese filling. Pinch seam closed and twist to seal. Or roll
out dough to 1/4 inch thick and place filling on dough and fold dough
over. Cut out dough with a cutter, glass or whatever is appropriate
size. Pinch seam closed and twist seam to seal. Boil until they float
and are soft to the touch.
