Whether you spell it perogies or pierogies, it doesn’t really matter. What DOES matter is that you’ve tried these mouth-watering morsels. And once you’ve tried them, you’re going to want to make them yourself.
Being married to a guy who is half Polish means I’ve had the tremendous pleasure of trying a few yummy (and some ….umm… interesting) Polish dishes. Homemade mushroom soup (nothing canned about this one!), cabbage rolls, kielbassa and pickle sandwiches (not entirely Polish, but still delicious!), pickled beets and mushrooms, to name a few.
But by far the favourite is homemade pierogies. While I have made these a few times, I’ve been unsuccessful in finding a dough recipe that tastes “just right”, according to The Man. I finally asked my mother-in-law for her dough recipe, made it, and bingo! We were in pierogy-making business!
This recipe is for potato and cheese filling, with an easy blueberry filling for dessert. Both are served with sour cream, but for the blueberry pierogies, add a little sugar to sweeten.
Smacznego! (That’s Polish for “enjoy your meal”!)
