Polish Pierogi

We have many traditions in our family.  Preparing and cooking food from our Polish Culture, is one of  many we enjoy.  Recipes and meals have been passed down from generations past to me. Now that I’m a mother  I hope to continue the traditions with my own children.  There are so many favorites to choose from but there is a favorite my children enjoy. I love teaching them how to prepare and cook them. We have a great time making these memories and my hope is they cherish them forever, I’m sure I will.

There are so many fillings to choose from when making Pierogis. I hope you enjoy preparing them with your kids or just making a batch for yourself. whether your hosting a dinner party, or at your next holiday meal. Whatever the occasion may be, I hope you enjoy them as much as we do.

Pierogi-

2 cups flour
1/2 cup water
1 whole egg
1 egg yolk
2 tablespoons sour cream
1 teaspoon butter or margarine

If you have a dough hook, mix all ingredients until the dough is pliable. Or mix the ingredients together with a spoon and then knead. If the dough is too soft,add more flour, if too stiff, add water.

Cut the dough in half and roll out to 1/16 th of an inch thick. Cut circles about 3 1/2 inches in diameter. Place a spoonful of your favorite filling on half the circle and pinch together.

Put the pierogi into boiling salted water. Cook for 5 minutes. Remove from the water with a slotted spoon and serve with melted butter. Or cook the pierogi in butter in pan over low heat until
lightly browned. Pierogi can be filled with potato, cheese, mushroom, sauerkraut ,(my favorite) plum, or even cherry fillings.
