Pierogi 3 ways with goat cheese - eggplant, pumpkin and blueberry

This recipe for Pierogi "Polish Dumplings" with goat cheese made 3 ways is just perfect to celebrate the National Pierogi (8th of October).



They are full of "end of summer" and autumn flavors - like blueberries and pumpkin. I made tree recipes, they are all vegetarian, and for those of you that prefer savory flavors there is something that you will enjoy tremendously.
