I pretty much followed the recipe exactly. These were only "eh." They really needed some sort of seasoning (salt at the very least, but even after I salted them they weren't fantastic). They may have managed a 3 star review if they weren't also a lot of trouble to make. Tip for anyone who is still planning to try them.... don't go to too much trouble to make the thinnest dough possible. I had probably 3 times as many dough rounds as I needed (I put those in the freezer to make ravioli or something with in the future), and the completed pierogies didn't hold up very well. The last 5-6 I put together were fine, but the ones that had been sitting there longer fell apart due to the moisture from the beets soaking through the dough. If you do want a really thin dough, definitely get your water boiling ahead of time and drop the pierogies in as you go instead of waiting to boil them until they're all put together.
