What are the ingredients you need to make classic pierogies?

-4 cups of all-purpose flour

-2 teaspoons of salt

-Prepare two teaspoons of pepper.

-Melted butter (two teaspoons)

-Prepare two cups of sour cream.

-Eggs (three pieces)

-Vegetable oil (two teaspoons)

– Prepare eight pieces of potatoes.

-1 cup of shredded cheese

-Prepare three tablespoons of cheese sauce.

Prepare an onion.

Start off by mixing your flour and salt on a large bowl. The next step is to prepare another bowl where you can mix and whisk your melted butter, eggs, vegetable oil, and sour cream. Make sure you stir very well in order for all the ingredients to blend together. Cover the bowl with a clean towel and wait for the dough to rise.

While waiting for your dough to rise, it is now time to cook your potatoes. Get a huge pot where you can boil your potatoes for approximately 15 minutes. After 15 minutes and your potatoes are now cooked, you have to mash it and mix in your shredded cheese and cheese sauce (I recommend that you mix in the cheese sauce while it’s hot). Don’t forget to add flavor to your filling by seasoning it with salt and pepper.

After your dough has risen, it will be much easier for you to roll it when you divide it into two parts. Roll it out on a floured surface until it is thin. After this, get your cookie cutter or perogie cutter and start cutting the dough into circles. Put the filling on the center and see to it that you brush the edges of the circles with water before you fold the circles into half. See to it that you press the dough well- this ensures you that the edges are sealed. Finally, place the dish inside a freezer overnight and either boil or deep fry it.
