  8. Cut into a circle using a  large juice glass.  .
  9. Add a spoonful of potatoes to the center, fold over and pinch ends….be careful to not get potatoes in the ends you are pinching or they will “blow-out” in the water.
  10. Once you get 8 ready, add to a large pot of boiling water and boil 5 minutes.
  11. Carefully lift out with a plastic slotted spoon.  .
  12. Cool on cookie sheet. .
  13.  I bag them 8 at a time and they can be frozen for at least 6 months.  .
