2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sour cream
100 g/4 oz butter or clarified butter
Make a well in the middle of a mound of sifted flour and add 1/2 cup water, 2 tbsp of melted butter, and 2 eggs beaten with less than a teaspoon of salt. Mix with flour until you get a smooth dough, but do not knead.
Roll the dough 1/2 cm (1/5 in) and cut into small pieces of any shape.
Put pieces of dough (halushky) into a pot with boiling salted water, lower the heat and simmer approximately 10 minutes. When cooked halushky float to the top take them out with a skimmer and put into a strainer to drain. Meanwhile, heat butter in a pot or in a skillet, add halushky and sauté until slightly browned. Serve immediately.
If desired — add sour cream to finished halushky.
