Pierogi (Poland)

Pierogi is a popular Eastern European food which consist of a delicate dough stuffed with potato filling, sauerkraut, meat, cheese, and sometimes fruit. The origins of pierogi are different.Some legends say that pierogi came from China through Italy  from Marco Polo’s expeditions. Others contend that pierogi were brought to Poland by Saint Hyacinth of Poland, who brought them back from Kiev.



3 eggs

1 container of sour cream

3 cups of flour

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon baking powder


As a filling you can use sweet, white cheese, blueberries, strawberries, sauerkraut with mushrooms, mashed potatoes etc.


To make the dough, beat together the eggs and sour cream until smooth. Add the flour, salt, and baking powder into the sour cream mixture and stir until dough comes together. Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface until it is firm and smooth. Divide the dough in few pieces, then roll out each one about to 4,5 cm thickness. Cut into 7 cm rounds using a biscuit cutter or a cup.

Place a small spoonful of the filling you chose into the center of each round, then fold over (you can moisten the edges with a water before) and press together with a fork to seal.

Boil a large pot of lightly salted water. Add prepared pierogies and cook until pierogi float to the top. Remove with a slotted spoon.
