So I dont know whats up with me but I’ve been having these crazy cravings—no, I’m not pregnant but for a couple of days now I’ve wanted to eat Pierogis (you know those Polish dumplings made with potato on the inside) I mean, I’ve been craving it so much I would give up on my diet for em!!
So last night I started making the dough and the filling so that it could be ready for me this morning when I decided to make them. Can you imagine 7am and someone making pierogis because they have nothing better to do??
Well let me tell you, I dont have anything better to do! =)
Anyways, heres the recipe:
- 2 cups flour, plus extra for kneading and rolling dough
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 large egg
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1/4 cup butter, softened and cut into small pieces
- butter and onions for sauteing
- 4 large potatoes
- 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
- salt & pepper to taste
- 1 cup grated cheddar cheese
Roll the pierogi dough on a floured board or countertop until 1/8″ thick. Cut circles of dough (2″ for small pierogies and 3-3 1/2″ for large pierogies) with a cookie cutter or drinking glass. Place a small ball of filling (about a tablespoon) on each dough round and fold the dough over, forming a semi-circle. Use a fork to press down edges.
The great thing about this recipe is that you can pretty much use any filling that you like you can also serve it with many toppings, onions and butter which is what I did, or you can have honey dijon mustard, apple sauce, sour cream, the ideas are endless!!!
