(Makes 18-24 ravioli)

QUICK AND EASY RAVIOLI DOUGH

2 cups all-purpose flour 
1 tsp. Salt 
2 TB. Unsalted butter 
1/2 cup boiling water 

In a food processor, place the flour and salt.  Add the butter and pulse until the flour has the texture of rough cornmeal.  With the machine running, slowly add the water.  Gather the dough into a ball and place on a floured surface.  Knead lightly, just until the dough is smooth.  Divide in half and keep one-half covered while you work with the other.  On a well floured surface, roll out the dough to 1/8" thickness.  Using a round cutter 3" in diameter cut out dough rounds.  Using a tablespoon, place mounds of filling on 1/2 of the rounds.  Place an unfilled round on top of the filling and press the edges of the dough together firmly between thumb and forefinger.  Moisten edges with a little water if they are not sealing properly.  Place rounds on a surface that has been dusted with cornmeal.  Cover with a towel or plastic wrap.  Repeat procedure with the remaining half of dough. 

Completed ravioli can be refrigerated for a few hours before cooking.  They can also be frozen by placing them on a cookie sheet and freezing until firm and then storing in a plastic bag for 2-3 months.  Cook ravioli in salted water until they rise to the top, 3-4 minutes for fresh ravioli or 9-10 minutes for frozen.
