How to make it

  • To make dough:

  • Put the flour in a large shallow bowl and make a well in the center.
  • In a separate bowl, mix together the water, egg, oil, and salt.
  • Pour this mixture into the well in the flour.
  • Stir with a wooden spoon to gradually incorporate the flour and for a soft dough.
  • Transfer dough to a lightly floured surface and knead, dusting with flour as needed, until elastic and smooth. About 8 minutes.
  • The dough will be very soft. Cover it and let it rest at least half an hour to relax.
  • To make the filling:

  • Heat the oil in a large skillet over low heat.
  • Add onion and saute until golden brown, about 15-20 minutes.
  • While onions are cooking, peel potatoes and mash until smooth.
  • Mix in the caramelized onions, cheese, salt and pepper.
  • Cover and keep refrigerated until ready to fill pierogi.
  • To make the dumplings:

  • Divide the dough in half. Leave one half covered to avoid drying and roll the other half out on a lightly floured surface to 1/8 inch thick.
  • Cut out 2-inch rounds.
  • Place a round in your hand and top with 1 teaspoon of the filling.
  • Fold the round in half and pinch edges to seal completely.
  • Repeat with all of the dough, rerolling scraps as needed.
  • Cooking:

  • Bring a 6-8 quart pot of salted water to a boil.
  • Add pierogi, stirring with a wooden spoon to keep them from sticking to each other or the bottom of the pot.
  • When the pierogi float to the surface, reduce heat and simmer for 3-5 minutes.
  • Drain and serve with caramelized onions and/or sour cream.

    Purely to taste, though if you're serving it with caramelized onions, less is needed in the filling. 1 onion, chopped and caramelized. Saute 2 if you plan on serving it with them on the side and mix half with the filling.
