“This is a fast version of regular verenika, which is individual dumplings filled with a cottage cheese mixture, boiled, then fried, and then served with a ham gravy. But it has the flavor of the original verenika dish. Once a year, regular verenika is served at our MCC sale to raise funds for the Mennonite Central Committee. I got the recipe from our church cookbook and have changed it just a little.”
