Pierogi Recipe

If you have been following me, you will know how I absolutely love pierogi.
Pierogi is Polish dumplings. It’s very simple and yet so delicious. Everytime I eat pierogi, I always feel homy – it makes me think of a grandma sitting by the fire making these little delights one by one.

I was introduced to pierogi by a Polish friend of mine. He was telling me and my friends about pierogi and decided to make us. Him and a few other Polish friends made a lot of pierogi that day. I was addicted.

Some days ago, I was missing Warsaw and remembered a really good traditional Polish restaurant there. They had really good pierogi. So I did the unthinkable to satisfy my crave. I went to the kitchen and made pierogi.

It turns out pierogi is actually easy to make. I took around 135gr of flour and mixed it with one egg and some warm water just to get a good base.

Then I boiled potatoes (around 2-3) and mashed them. Because we don’t have good cheese here, I added cream cheese and onion that have been cooked till golden brown. After that, all I needed to do was roll out the base and create circles then put the potatoes mix inside it.

To eat, these pierogi can be fried or boiled for a few minutes using salted water served with some onion and voila!

 

Mind you, it was a little difficult in the rolling the dough part. A lot of hard work there! I made a lot of pierogi and put it in the freezer for my next crave. Enjoy the recipe and let me know if you tried it!

  8. YUM!! It was only a matter of time before you posted a pierogi recipe… 😀 The photo looks great.

    My favorite kind are potato/cheese pierogi, followed my cabbage/mushroom (I eat the latter only during the holidays, that makes them even more special).

    Kneading the dough is definitely the hardest part, which is why I don’t make pierogi that often. But the end result is always so worth it.

    Here’s to more #TeamPierogi adventures (and maybe a tweetup) in 2014!
