Varenyky with sour cherries



  • 3 eggs
  • 5-6 cups of flour
  • 0.5 cup of milk
  • 0.5 cup of water
  • 800 g cherries
  • 0.5 cup of sugar
  • 2-3 tbsp semolina
  • salt – to taste


Divide yolks and whites. Whip the whites stiffly. Add milk, water, flour, and salt. Knead stiff dough. Leave it for 30 minutes.


 Remove the seeds from the sour cherries. Mix them with sugar and semolina. Leave the ingredients for half of an hour. The semolina is used in order to prevent the runout of the cherry juice and the adhesion of varenyky during the boiling. The semolina does not influence the taste.

Then roll the dough, cut off the rounds. Place filling on each round, join the edges and paste them up.

Boil varenyly in salty water. Serve hot with sour cream.

Enjoy your meal!
