How to make them:
To make the dough, melt the butter in the hot milk and then gently pour the warm milk onto the flour. Knead until you have a smooth, workable dough. Shape the dough into a ball, cover with cling wrap, and leave to rest.
In the meantime, boil the potatoes until soft, allow to cool briefly, and press or sieve through a potato press. Dice the onion, add chives and the cheese mix, season with salt and mix well with the potatoes.
Shape the dough into a roll approx. 5 cm / 2'' in diameter. Cut slices and roll out each on a floured work surface until thin and round. Place small balls of the filling on the dough circles, or use a spoon to apply the filling. Coat the edges of the dough with some water, fold the dough together, and press firmly.
Place the Krapfen into hot clarified butter and fry until golden brown. Remove carefully and arrange on preheated plates.
