HOMEMADE POLISH PIEROGIES


HOMEMADE POLISH PIEROGIES 


INGREDIENTS

DOUGH:

4 cups flour
2 eggs
8 tbsp unsalted butter 1 stick, softened
1 tsp salt
1 cup warm milk

FILLING:

2 cups braised cabbage or mashed potatoes

INSTRUCTIONS

Stir the flour and salt in a large bowl. Cut in the butter until mixture looks crumbly. Add in the eggs then milk and stir with a wooden spoon until mixture holds together.
Lightly knead in the bowl to smooth out any rough looking parts. Set aside.
Roll dough out to 1/8"thickness (you may need to divide the dough in half and roll dough out at a time if your working area is small.)
Cut out circles using a cup 3" in diameter.
Place about a heaping teaspoon of filling in the centers and seal pierogies. Transfer to a floured tray and continue to work on the dough rolling out the scraps. (Tip: use a flat utensil like the end of a skewer to get deep looking seals.)
Freeze or boil in water for 3 minutes.
To cook frozen: Boil in water for 3-4 minutes then sauté in butter until nicely seared (about 2-3 minutes.)
