Add to skillet; cook for 15 minutes or until golden.
Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Set aside and let cool.
DOUGH: Meanwhile, in bowl, combine flour with salt.

Turn out onto lightly floured surface; knead 10 times or until smooth.
Halve dough and cover with plastic wrap; let rest for 20 minutes.
Divide each half into three.

Place 1 tsp (5 mL) filling on each round; moisten edge of one-half of dough with water.
Pinch edges to seal; crimp, if desired.
Place on cloth; cover with damp towel to keep moist.
In large pot of boiling salted water, cook dumplings, in batches, for 1-1/2 to 2 minutes or until they float to top, stirring gently to prevent sticking.
