Grandma's Homemade Perogies

Perogy, Pyrohy, Pierogi, Varenyky ... however you know them, my gramma made the BEST perogies. You can too, with her homemade Perogies Recipe. A little bit of work, for the best comfort food ever!

YOU WILL NEED: Red potatoes Cheddar cheese All-purpose flour Vegetable oil Large eggs Salt See the linked post for filling variations.

Following the linked recipe, make the dough.   Cover the bowl and let it rest 1 hour.

Peel the potatoes.  Boil potatoes until fork tender and ready to mash.

Mash potatoes until smooth, and mix in your cheese until melted in.  You can do this by hand, or use a stand mixer.

 Roll out dough on floured counter top, cut with a large glass or round cookie cutter. Place 1 tablespoon of filling in the center of each round. 

Pick 1 round up in your non-dominant hand, and use your other hand to fold the dough around the filling, sealing the edge all the way across.

Make sure your perogies are sealed well,or they will explode when you cook them! Also, I like to flatten them out a little.

Boil as directed, then serve! These are great with bacon, sauerkraut, onions, and/or kielbasa.  Enjoy!
