Mix ingredients and knead into a soft & pliable dough. Cover & let sit for 10 minutes in a warm bowl. Knead for 15-20 minutes at most. Divide the dough in 1/2. Roll thin. Cut into 2-inch squares or use the rim of a large round glass. Take one piece & stretch slightly, place a small spoonfull of filling in the center, fold dough over & very carefully seal the edges. Wetting the edge very slightly insures a good seal. In the pot of salted boiling water & cook until they float, gently remove from pot with a slotted spoon and cook in a skillet with melted butter and onions on a medium heat. Allow to brown, if you wish. This option is for the meat or potato Vareniki only.
Put in a freezer bag and freeze. To prepare after freezing just drop into the boiling salted water, cook until they float, gently remove with a slotted spoon, place on a draining rack, drizzle with melted butter, serve, and spoon on large dollops of sour cream. This is for the cheese or fruit Vareniki. Note: You may also sprinkle with sugar if you wish.
