   2 T of the butter. Stir slowly untilk all of the
   ingredients are well mixed and the water is totally

   firm, stiff dough is formed. Gather the dough into a
   ball. on  floured surface roll the dough ball out into
   a rectangle approx. 16 x 18". Brush the dough with
   the remaining butter, fold into quarters, then roll it
   out as thinly as possible. Cut into a 16 x 18
   rectangle the cut that into 48 each 2 squares.

   parsley, & dill. Cut the butter into tiny bits and
   chill until the dough is ready. Place a teaspoon of
   the filling mix into the center of each square, add a

   pinch them together firmly thus closing the filling
   into the dough. Heat enough oil in a deep pot. Heat to
