About the Recipe
Pierogi are delicious, and they come in so many varieties that it is hard not to like them. The one with meat, and fruits or my favorite "ruskie" - with farmers' cheese and potatoes, are only some of the examples.
The problem that I always had with making pierogi is that they take a long time and you end up doing them alone after. And spending hours making pierogi is not something that I have time to do. So I came up with an idea where I could make a game of it for my son. We counted them, we played with the dough, learned shapes, learned how to make a ball, and trust me, that made all the difference.
So to sum it up making Pirogi is a time consuming but if you just make a game out of it and have your family join to make them it will be a lot of fun and fantastic time to spend with you family.
This recipe is for my favorite Pierogi "ruskie". The filling is made of mashed potatoes and farmers' cheeses, onion and spices. They are one of the most traditional dishes in Poland but for all the good reasons.
