A Polish delicacy, pierogi are basically stuffed, half-moon shaped pasta shells. They can be boiled, pan fried, deep fried, or baked. Since its one of the foods that I personally grew up on, I'll share a recipie.
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
the flour and baking powder.
Add to this the egg and enough water to make a soft dough
the dough on a floured surface for about five minutes.
Let the dough stand for 10-20 minutes.
Using a rolling pin and knife, make up some thin two inch squares with the dough.
Place a teaspoon
of filling in center and fold
edges together with fingers.
While you can probably fill a pierogi with anything you want
, in my area there were a few fillings that were popular.
Mash four cooked potatoes. Add two ounces sharp cheese and salt to taste.
up one large cabbage
, and one medium onion
into small pieces. In a pan add 1/2 teaspoon salt
and two tablespoons of shortening
onion in shortening then add the cabbage. Fry until browned.
Mix 1/2 lb. dry cottage cheese with one beaten egg.
