Happy New Year, Pierogi Style!

A First Try with Pierogies.

We’ve eaten pierogies and enjoyed them, but never made them from scratch. That changed last night. After a mild meltdown over having the flour turn out a sticky mess instead of a nice ball of dough, we finally got started after Iris saved the day with more flour.

They turned out delicious.

    Lester, since I did not know what pierogies were I thought the character in the picture was a pierogies. And, by the way, I think HGTV cooking had these on the other day or at least very much like these. I think that they were putting some clam mix in the middle. Is this Italian or what?

    Whether you spell it pierogi, piroghi or pierogie, authentic homemade pierogies are a delicious treat and a Pittsburgh tradition. In Pittsburgh they eat more than 11 times the pierogies of any other city in the nation, according to a recent survey, with pierogi fillings ranging from standard potato and cheese to sweet prune. A popular Pittsburgh business, Pierogies Plus, ships pierogies as far away as Alaska and Hawaii. The Pittsburgh Pirates even hold a pierogi race during the bottom of the 5th inning at every Pirates home game.
    Sour cream in the dough is a favorite secret of many Pittsburgh pierogi makers.
