How to make it

  • Making the dough
  • Combine the flour and salt.
  • Mix in the oil, beaten eggs and water and knead the dough until smooth.
  • Cover and let the dough rest for at least 15 minutes.
  • Making the filling
  • Sauté the onion in the oil until translucent.
  • Mix into the mashed potato and season with salt and pepper.
  • Or
  • Blend cottage cheese and eggs, add salt, pepper and grated oinons. Allow to rest in the refridgerator for 20 minutes.
  • Making the perogies
  • Roll the dough out thinly on a floured work surface.
  • Using a round cookie cutter, cut the dough into 4" rounds. Place a spoonful of the filling in the centre of each circle. Moisten the edges of the dough, fold in half to enclose the filling and seal the edges well.
  • The varenyky can be frozen at this point in a single layer on a baking sheet. Once frozen, they can be placed into freezer bags.
  • To cook, drop into boiling salted water and cook until the dumplings are floating. Serve with sautéed onions. Of course they can be pan fried as well and served with a doulpe of sour cream.

    I love perogies...but must confess I have only purchased them in the frozen foods section of the market. I love to boil them and put melted butter, salt and pepper on decadent!

    Wow, didn't know they were called that, though I've been eating something similar for years, except it was always baked and I always had it dolloped with salted sour cream. Never thought of boiling them. These look so yummy and comforting. I can just imagine biting into one. Mmmmmmmm........

    My Mom hasn't made homemade ones in many years, but I've always wanted to try to make my own. Thanks for the inspiration. I'd of course go for the cottage cheese ones!
