Homemade Pierogi Recipe

Here is a homemade pierogi recipe, my polish side is showing through on this one 🙂 I gathered some supplies, those are the last of my potatoes, we need to grow a larger crop this year.

Image

I got the potatoes boiling in water

Image

and took 3 cups of flour

Image

and added a cup of yogurt, need to make some more

Image

and one egg and tsp of salt

Image

I mixed it well

Image

and then poured in a cup of water

Image

and formed a dough ball

Image

while that rested for a half hour, I chopped up half a onion

Image

and set that in a pot with butter and pepper

Image

I let it caramelize

Image

the potatoes were done boiling,

Image

so I used a slotted spoon to transfer them into the onion pan, I saved the potato water and let it continue to boil

Image

I added the last of my cream cheese, about 8 oz or so I guess

Image

and mashed it with a spoon to give it texture

Image

I cut off a piece of dough and laid it on my floured cutting board, rolling it out

Image

Image

I used a coffee cup to cut out circles

Image

and spooned some of the filling onto each one

Image

I took a egg white and brushed around the edge of the dough

Image

Image

and folded it over and used a fork to seal the edges

Image

I moved them into the potato water I still had boiling until they float which takes a couple minutes

Image

and drained them

Image

and moved them directly into a saute pan with melted butter and browned and crisped them up

Image

a little salt, pepper and bacon jam, and you’re good to go
