"Kreplach are often made for the Purim feast. They are dumplings filled with meat, onions, and spices. They can be served in chicken soup (similar to won ton soup) or fried and served as a side dish. This recipe is for ground beef kreplach but you could also use chicken or other vegetables to make a vegetarian version. If you prefer, you may leave the cinnamon and walnuts out of this recipe."

It is a good basic recipe for kreplach except for the dough. i found a solution for the dough is to by kosher wanton or egg roll wrappers. Fill the wrappers and then boil or fry .

I also wanted to add that it made WAY more meat filling than we could possibly use in the dough, even after we had added the extra flour to make it more dough like. Also I upped the amt. of cinn...

This recipe will work if you increase the amount of flour to 4 cups. I would also suggest removing the cinnamon and walnuts.
