My mom used to make these. Instead of putting the onion in the mashed potatoes, she would saute them in the melted butter, and serve on top. To save time, she would also cut the dough in squares, instead of the circles.

    Roll out the dough on a lightly-floured surface as thinly as possible without it tearing. Using a cup or a cookie cutter, cut out circles that are roughly 3 to 4 inches in diameter. Spoon several teaspoons of filling in the center of the circle. Brush the edges of the dough with water. Fold the circle over to make a semi-circle, sealing the dough and crimping the edges together with a fork. Make sure that no filling is leaking out of the edges and that the dough is not torn.

    You can also freeze these. I place the first layer on a waxed paper lined cookie sheet., and stack them ,with a sheet of waxed paper between layers. Put in the freezer, for about 10 minutes or so, they'll be easier to handle when putting them into Zip- Lock bags.
