Directions:
First part is the filling. Sautee until well done onions with garlic in oil and set aside. Chop up cooked chicken meat(best from chicken soup) in food processor to tuna fish consistency. (Bubbie places meat in an old wooden bowl and uses a round chopping blade for the entire process) Remove chicken and chop onions to finer consistency. Remove and place in a large bowl. Add chopped chicken, beaten egg. Mix. Taste and add salt and pepper. You might need a lot more then you think. I can't remember how much. Just keep tasting a pinch of it at a time until you are happy with it.
In a large bowl or in a mixer, mix dough ingredients together . Place dough on floured countertop. If the dough is sticky add a little more flour, a Tblespoon at a time until easy to work with. Roll out dough with rolling pin onto a floured countertop. Cut into 2x 2 squares. Add 1-2 teaspoons full of meat mixture into center of square. Fold dough into a triangle shape pushing meat mixture into the center and pinching very well along edges. Its tricky to master. Practice a few and it will become easier. Take the 2 edges and pinch them together forming the kreplach. Place on floured wax paper or floured countertop. Use all the dough. Boil a big pot of salted water. When boiling, add a little oil and then drop gently one kreplach at a time into water. If you didn't pinch them hard enough around edges they will fall apart now. If you were successful, cook in covered medium heat pot for about 20 minutes. Gently drain when done. Kreplach can be reheated in soup or oven. Bubbie always fries them!

Personal Notes:
Pauline transcribed this recipe. "I (Pauline) have never made this totally on my own, but as Lauren and I watched Bubbie one day in my kitchen we attempted to write it down as she made them.

Bubbie made these Kreplach whenever daddy could convince her to, which was almost every time he asked. They were his favorite.
