Maultaschen are loosely equivalent to ravioli in Germany, and can contain any number of fillings, sweet and savory. In Bavaria, it is common to have a sweet filling such as apple. There are also several ways of creating the dough. Some recipes call for a potato dough (which is the traditional way) or a typical flour dough.
This recipe is an adaptation of a Bavarian recipe I came across online which uses a potato dough. Enjoy!
