(4-6 portions)
Dough
3 cups of flour
1 egg
1 cup of water.

Filling (Beetroot and cheese)
1/2 beetroot
1/4 grated cheese
2 tsp of sour cream
salt, pepper.
If you intend to do only this filling, multiply by three the amounts of the filling

Cooking
1 tbsp of oil
1l of water
pinch of salt

Prepare the filling (Beetroot and cheese)
Peel and grate finely the beetroot.
Mix the ingredients.

Making pierogies with a pasta machine and a pierogi folder:
Lower the dough with a rolling pin or a pasta machine to obtain a fin dough.
With a pasta machine: take a fourth of the pasta, pass it through the machine a first time with number one.
Fold the dough, and pass it through the machine one more time. Then pass it through number two to four.
Don’t forget to flour the dough, the table you’re working on.
If you have a pierogi folder, cut circle with the back of your pierogi maker. (If not refer below)
Put the circle in your pierogi folder.
Fill it with the chosen filling.
Wet the border of the pierogi with cool water.
Fold the pierogi.

Making pierogies with no accesories:
Lower the dough with a rolling pin.
Don’t forget to flour the dough, the table you’re working on, the rolling pin
Cut out small circles with a glass.
Put some filling in the middle of the pierogi.
Wet the border of the pierogi with cool water.
Fold the pierogi and nip the border firmly.
With a fork press the border to obtain a pretty finishing (I know this is not the traditionnal way of doing it, but it gives pretty good results, so what!)

Cooking the pierogies (boiling method):
In a large saucepan, bring 1 liter of water to boil.
Add a tbsp of oil and the pinch of salt.
Drop five to ten pierogies in the water.
Cook them for three to five minutes (they should then be floating).
Sieve and set aside.
Continue to Cook the other pierogies.

Two solutions:

  1. Either eat them so, or grill them in a frying pan with one tsp of oil.
  2. Cook them both sides.

Cooking method (frying method):
Heat one litre of oil in a frying pan.
Fry the pierogies for one minutes.
Sieve and serve.

Comment: I don’t like the frying method, but this is my opinion.

Comment: The boiled ones are sometimes eaten in soups.
