How to make it

  • To prepare filling: place potatoes in saucepan; cover with wter. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat, simmer, uncovered 20 minutes or until tender. Drain and return to pan.
  • Mash potatoes with potato masher. Stir in milk, butter, onion 1/2 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper. (potato mixture should be quite stiff). Cool
  • To prepare dough: combine flour, sour cream, egg, egg yolk, oil, salt and pepper. Mix well.
  • Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead 3 to 5 minutes or until soft and pliable, but not sticky. Let rest, covered, 10 minutes.
  • Divide dough in half. roll out each half into 13 inch diameter circle on lightly floured surface with lightly floured rolling pin. cut dough with 2 1/2 inch round cutter.
  • Place 1 rounded tsp of potato filling in center of each circle. Moisten edges of circles with water and fold in half; press edges firmly to seal.
  • Bring 4 quarts lightly salted water to boil. Cook pierogi in batches for 10 minutes. remove with slotted spoon to serving dish.
  • Drizzle butter over pierogi, if desired. Or top with marinara sauce.
