Dairy Kreplach (Dumplings)

Classic Jewish Kreplach with a twist, filled with a cheese mixture.


  • Ready Time : 0 min




    • 1 cup of water
    • 2 tablespoons butter (1 oz.)
    • 1 tsp salt
    • 10.5 oz sifted flour about 2 cups
    • 1 egg

    Cheese Filling

    • 10.5 oz Farmer cheese or Ricotta
    • 2 Tbs chopped chives
    • 1-2 Tbs chopped dill
    • 3 1/2 oz. soft goat's cheese
    • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan, Pecorino or Kashkaval cheese (50 g)
    • 1 egg yolk
    • Salt and pepper to taste
    • 1 Tbs sifted flour


    Bring water with butter and salt to a boil. Remove from heat, add the flour and stir with a wooden spoon. Add the egg and stir immediately.

    Let it cool to room temperature, cover the dough with cling film and refrigerate for at least one hour.

    In the meantime – prepare the cheese filling (you may need to double the amount but start with this basic recipe and if you need more – prepare it later). Mix all the ingredients together and refrigerate.

    Divide dough and roll it out on a well-floured board. Make sure the dough is very thin but not paper-thin, as it has to hold the filling and not rip while cooking.

    There are two options at this point: You can cut 2.5X2.5 inch squares to create triangular shaped Kreplach or Cut 2.5 inches (6.5 cm) circles with a cookie cutter or a glass to create tortellini-shaped dumplings.

    Place a teaspoon of filling in the center of the square and fold the dough over the filling to create half a circle. Press gently with your fingers to seal the dumpling.

    Place on a well floured pan and freeze for at least half an hour.

    At this point you can store the Kreplach in plastic bags or boxes and freeze until using.

    Bring a pot of water to a vigorous boil, add 1 tablespoon salt, drop in the kreplach, and cook for about 10-15 minutes.

    Place in a serving dish, drizzle with olive oil or melted butter, sprinkle Parmesan cheese and voila !
