Ingredients for the authentic polish pierogies recipe:

For the Dough:

  – 2 cups all-purpose flour

  – 2 large eggs

  – 1/2 cup sour cream

  – 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted

  – 1/2 teaspoon salt

 For the Filling:

  – 3 large potatoes, peeled and diced

  – 1 cup farmer’s cheese (or ricotta)

  – 1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese

  – 1 small onion, finely chopped and sautéed

  – Salt and pepper to taste

 For Cooking and Serving:

  – Butter for sautéing

  – Sour cream for serving


1. Prepare the Dough:

In a large mixing bowl, combine 2 cups of all-purpose flour and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together 2 large eggs, 1/2 cup of sour cream, and 1/4 cup of melted unsalted butter. Gradually add the wet ingredients to the dry ones, stirring until a dough forms. Knead the dough on a floured surface until smooth. Cover and let it rest while you prepare the filling.

2. Make the Filling:

Boil 3 large peeled and diced potatoes until tender. Mash them in a large bowl and let them cool slightly. Add 1 cup of farmer’s cheese (or ricotta), 1/2 cup of grated cheddar cheese, sautéed onions, salt, and pepper. Mix until well combined, creating a creamy and flavorful potato and cheese filling.

3. Roll and Cut the Dough:

Roll out the dough on a floured surface to about 1/8-inch thickness. Use a round cookie cutter or a glass to cut out circles from the dough.

4. Fill ‘Em Up:

Place a small spoonful of the potato and cheese filling in the center of each dough circle.

5. Fold and Seal:

Fold the dough over the filling, creating a half-moon shape. Press the edges firmly to seal the pierogi, ensuring no filling escapes during cooking.

6. Boil to Perfection:

Bring a large pot of salted water to a gentle boil. Drop the pierogi into the water in small batches, stirring gently to prevent sticking. Once they float to the surface, let them cook for an additional 2-3 minutes.

7. Sauté for Crispy Perfection:

After boiling, transfer the pierogi to a hot skillet with melted butter. Sauté until they achieve a golden brown crust on both sides.

8. Serve and Enjoy:

Plate your pierogi and serve them hot with a dollop of sour cream on the side. Garnish with chopped chives or green onions for an extra burst of flavor. Enjoy your delicious homemade pierogi!
