Here's how to make your own homemade pierogi:
1 Cup Flour
1 Tsp. Baking Powder
3/8 of an 8oz container of Sour Cream
1/8 Tsp. Salt
1 Tbs. Butter
3 Tbs. Chopped Onion
2/3 Cup Cold Mashed Potatoes
1/4 Tsp. Salt
1/4 Tsp. White Pepper
1. Melt butter in your fry pan over medium heat. Stir in the onion and cook until translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir into the mashed potatoes, and season with salt and white pepper.
2. To make the dough, beat together the eggs and sour cream until smooth. Sift together the flour, salt, and baking powder; stir into the sour cream mixture until dough comes together. Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface until firm and smooth. Roll out dough to 1/8 inch thickness. Cut into 3 inch rounds using a biscuit cutter or small juice glass.
3. Place a small spoonful of the mashed potato filling into the center of each round. Moisten the edges with water, fold over, and press together with a fork to seal.
4. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add perogies and cook for 3 to 5 minutes or until pierogi float to the top. Remove with a slotted spoon.
