First time making anything like this. I used to buy the frozen ones all the time, and thought they were pretty good.... I would doctor them up a lot, but still, not that bad. I did have a girlfriend in high school that had a polish grandmother who made these on special occasions, and they were AMAZING! That is how i first got into them, but after that, I only got the frozen ones.
This recipe is actually really fun and amazing. It is so simple and easy, but with a lot of room to customize and improve. A really good BASE set-up.
I cut the recipe in half just to test it... didn't want a hundred crappy things to throw away.
I made 12 with the halved recipe...
after I got the hang of rolling them and getting them ready to boil, things got fun. The last several I made came out soooo good I was overjoyed.
Followed the recipe exactly, and would recommend this to anyone. This one is a little trial and error for newer cooks. Make a few small batches and see where you need to make slight changes.
Once you get it, you will LOVE it. I don't think there is any one "secret" to nailing this recipe... just have to get a "feel" for it really.
the fillings can be almost endless, and you could add to the dough as well, to alter the texture and flavor.
I used an impromptu mashed potato recipe... just chopped and boiled russet potatoes with skins, drained, mashed with a scoop of sour cream, a touch of half and half, some salt pepper, onion salt and garlic powder, with cheddar
