Easy and got lots of compliments. I used a full cup of milk in the dough and rolled and cut them out like cookies for uniformity (made 16). I put a small piece of cheddar cheese beneath each dollop of mashed potatoes. Next time, I will boil them in salted water. I'm sure I will also experiment with more fillings. Thanks!
