Pierogi

Pierogi

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Flour
  • 1 Egg
  • 0.25 teaspoon Salt
  • 4 tablespoons Cold Water (Approximate)
  • Filling (See other recipes)
  • Melted Butter
  • Bread Crumbs

Directions

Preparing
Mix the flour, egg, and salt with enough water to make a medium-soft dough.
Knead well; then roll out until thin.
Cut into squares to make 40 pierogi or into 40 circles about 3.25 inches in diameter.
Filling
Place 1 teaspoon of filling in the center of each piece of dough and fold in half.
Pinch the edges well to keep the dumpling from falling apart.
Cooking
Drop into salted water and cook, covered, until all the pierogi float to the top, about 10 minutes.
Cook, still covered, for 5 minutes longer. Drain, and place on a heated platter.
Serving
Drizzle melted butter over the pierogi and sprinkle with bread crumbs and/or onions.
