The basic ingredients are fat, flour, salt, a little water or an egg yolk. Everything else is actually a secret of the Meissen Fummel bakers. Eventually, you need to create a kind of thinly rolled out pasta dough. After various web searches, we once tried this recipe variation.
1straw (this is not a joke)
Put the flour on a work surface, mix well with the sugar and salt and then add the butter.
Knead the dough well for about 10 minutes so that it is elastic at the end.
Roll out the dough paper-thin.
Brush one half with egg yolk and fold the other half over. Press the edge well and turn the dough piece to the other side. Place everything on a baking tray with baking paper.
Now use the straw: pierce the upper half of the dough with the straw and blow it up slightly.
Then put the dumpling in the oven preheated to 240 degrees and bake for 3 minutes.
