Pretty good, although I like my moms recipe better...Even amounts of cream cheese and mashed potatos (potatos should be a little more dry than creamy to prevent runniness), salt,pepper. Add the cream cheese to potatos to avoid making mixture to thin. When pieogis are prepared, they should be browned over butter and onions for an authentic Polish dish...Yum.

Tasted bland inside the pierogies, but great on its own. I will double the cheese if I make this again. UPDATE: I did make this again with doubled cheese and garlic powder. MUCH better flavor within pierogies.

This was very easy and very good. I halved the pierogi recipe but the amounts listed in the recipe for the filling looked to be quite a lot so I adjusted. I ended up using 4 small/medium potatoes to make the mashed potatoes. I threw in a couple cloves of garlic while the potatoes were boiling and mashed them also. I added 8-12 ounces cheddar (we like it cheesy) and 2-3 ounces cream cheese to the mashed potatoes. This ended up being the perfect amount for 36 three inch round pierogies.

Great filling for my homemade Pierogi filling. My wife could not stop talking about my Pierogis!

Good recipe, I added a little green onion to it just to give it that extra "oomph". Good consistency for filling the pierogies, easy to handle and it cooks nicely. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

THIS IS SOO GOOD!!! I used a sour cream, bacon, onion dip and it was a perfect match.

Awesome filling. I wasn't sure how much was 1lb of cheese and 4lbs of potato so I winged it. I added the cheese while the potatoes were still warm until the potatoes seemed sufficiently cheesy, then added in real bacon that I chopped up. I didn't even need salt or pepper. Very tasty filling.
