Homemade Pierogies!

I made some homemade pierogies from some of our homegrown potatoes! For the dough I used 2 cups of flour, 2 eggs, a tsp of salt and 1/3 cup of lukewarm water. I mixed the dough and then let it sit for 10 minutes.
For the inside of the pierogies I made regular mashed potatoes and added some suateed onions and shredded cheddar cheese.
I made some up and then let them sit in the fridge to chill. Then I rolled out the dough and used a large cup to cut them out. Then I spooned some of the potatoes into the center and folded them over and used my fingers to press and seal them shut.
Then I boiled them and fried them in butter. I like to dip mine in ranch dressing!
For my first time making them they came out pretty good! The kids sure did like them! They are a labor of love though!

Excellent post! They look so good. Being Polish, my family made these all the time. It is surprising how many people have never had them.

That's exactly how my family likes them too!

I agree with Katlupe. The first time I told my mother that I had made pierogies for dinner, she said, "You made what?"
