Preparing dishes:

1 pound cold cooked potatoes
3 3/4 cups all purpose flour
3/8ths cup butter
1 egg yolk
Pinch salt
12 whole apricots
12 lumps of sugar
1 1/4 cups white bread crumbs
1/4 cup fine sugar
3 tablespoons brandy
10 apricot halves
1/4 cup apricot juice
1/4 cup brandy

Grate potatoes. Measure and sift flour. Measure butter. Soak sugar lumps in brandy. Remove stone of whole apricots. Measure bread crumbs, sugar and brandy. Measure ingredients for sauce.

Mix flour with grated potato, add salt and egg yolk. Rub in butter and then turn dough out onto a floured board and knead. Press out dough to 1/4-inch thick.

Place a lump of brandied sugar in each half apricot, cover with another apricot half. Cut dough into 4-inch squares. Place apricot in the center and wrap dough around, squeezing edges of dough together. Trim off outside.

Roll dumpling between palms of hands. Drop dumplings into a large saucepan of salted boiling water. Boil gently for 12 minutes. Remove with slotted spoon and drain.
