DIRECTIONS

  • Put the cabbage in a large bowl, sprinkle with salt, mix, and set it aside for a 1/2 hour.
  • Cut the butter into the flour; add the salt, the egg, and enough water to form a soft dough.
  • On a floured surface, roll out to 1/2" thick.
  • In a heavy skillet, heat the oil, and brown the sugar.
  • Squeeze the liquid out of the cabbage and brown cabbage in the skillet, stirring often (25-30 minutes).
  • Let cool for 5 minutes, then spread on dough, and sprinkle with paprika and pepper.
  • Roll up jelly roll style, starting on the long side.
  • Cut the roll into 2" pieces, and roll each piece into a ball.
  • Roll in flour, then drop one at a time into boiling salted water (do not crowd the pot).
  • Dumplings will be done 3-4 minutes after they float to the surface (taste one to check for doneness; it should be moist, but not gummy in the middle).
  • Remove from water with a slotted spoon and roll in the cheese.
  • Place in a baking dish, and when all are finished and in the pan, sprinkle remaining cheese on top.
  • Broil in oven until cheese is melted.
  • Serve hot.
