"This is an old Czechoslovakian recipe. It has recently become available in supermarkets, but this recipe beats them all. Top cooked pierogi with sauteed onions and melted butter. These can also be frozen between layers of waxed paper and boiled for 10 minutes. Try alternate fillings of prunes or mashed potatoes." — Robbie Rice

I hate pierogi. I don't know what compelled me to make this recipe. I figured I would try it, maybe it would be good for pierogi. Turns out it was good in general! I will now call these 'fun little pockets of happy goodness'.I did end up with extra dough. I don't mind though, I'm going to play with stuffing it with all kinds of food, including fruits and meats, try pan frying it after boiling it. This has huge potential.
I used to eat the store-bought, but I can make a large batch of these, freeze them, and save $$$
I filled them with mashed potatoes and cheese. Delicious both ways!
My grandma fills hers with all sort of different fillings. She also uses a cottage cheese gravy or white gravy over them. YUMMY!!!
i love it
I added mashed potatoes to the filling and I am very glad I did. So good you could eat that just as a side dish. The dough I followed the recipe word for word, it took 2 hours to complete, the 5th cup of flour scared me because it seemed like to much and the dough got so stiff. The pierogi I had after freezing them were much better then the ones I cooked fresh. However this is as close as I have come to making a good pierogi that wasn't to dough or off textured. Thank you for the recipe.
