Ptysie (Stuffed Swirls) Recipe

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400F. Grease and lightly flour large baking sheet. Combine water, 1/2 cup margarine and salt in saucepan. Bring to boil over medium heat. Add flour all at once. Stir vigorously with wooden spoon until smooth and dough forms a ball and leaves side of pan. Remove from heat.
