"Added garlic and used extra sharp cheese to the potatos. Fried after boiling with polska kielbasa and tossed with a mustard/vinegar sauce with onions. Labor intensive and takes a while to assemble...but they were delicious. Loved it."- terik1972

Top-ranked recipe named "Pierogies"
* Bring to a boil two quarts of water.
* Peel potatoes and cut into medium pieces.
* Boil potatoes until soft, approximately 20 minutes.
* Drain potatoes well, add three ounces of milk, butter, salt and pepper and mix until mixture is smooth. Add cheddar cheese and mix again. Put mixture off to cool before using.
* On a clean surface, make a mountain with the flour. In the center of the mountain, make a dent with your fist. Pour in slightly beaten eggs and pinch of salt.
* Mix with your hands, adding milk slowly and mixing well after each addition to form a dough that is smooth and stiff but not sticky. If the dough is still wet, add more flour and knead well.
* Let the dough rest for about an hour and roll out as thin as possible and cut into three inch circles.
* Use a tablespoon to spoon in the filling.
* Wet edges of dough with fingertips dipped in water, then fold over and crimp edges with a fork to seal.
* Place pierogies in boiling salted water.
* They will float to the top when done (5-7 minutes)
**Serve with butter or Marinara sauce, your preference.

Ange325 4 months agoReally good. I found pinching with my fingers to hold better than the fork. Next time I'm going to season the potatoes how I normally do just adding cheese. All in all very good!

cleverkt 1 year agoPierogies are favourites of mine. I added some onions to this and it was yum. But lots of prep time - of course that was expected! Nice one!

dbmcleish 2 years agoWe had a little problem with too much milk - but my 'helper' was 6 years old, so that could have had something to do with it... :)
srhcrawford 2 years agoI made the recipe per instructions, but the filling is a little bland. Next time I am going to use herbs, bacon, and more cheese to make a more tasty pierogie.

Genesis130 4 years agoThese are awesome, it has been years since I have made them. You may also fill with potato and ricotta or cottage cheese, or with sauerkraut and mushrooms. After boiling, just fry them up and use sour-cream and chives also. ENJOY
Amgreen 4 years agoWhile assembling these is time-consuming, the payoff was great! My husband said they were way better than any storebought perogies, and I agree.
