these are my familys favorite.
I use my pasta machine to mix my dough, it's a lot easier then mixing it by hand. the dough recipe here makes 3 dozen and I just mix it up as needed till my filling is gone, I believe I get about 12 dozen. after cutting your circles it's easier to work with if you let them rest a few minutes. It's also easier to fill when your potatoes are cold.
