Mix all ingredients together lightly and knead in bowl. Rest dough
for one-half hour, covered. Knead the dough on a flour coated board
and roll out to one-eighth inch thickness. Cut out circles with
a cup, glass, or doughnut cutter (we've found 4.5 to 5 inches ideal
diameter). Fill with favorite filling pressing edges well together
(like turn-overs).

Cook in boiling (gentle boil) water for about ten minutes. Remove
using slotted spoon and rinse lightly with cold water. Serve with
melted butter, salt, pepper.

flour, one cup at a time to make soft dough. Knead the dough on
a flour coated board, cover with bowl and let rest for ten to
fifteen minutes. Roll out dough to one-eighth inch thickness.

Pierogi Dough #4

1 egg
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup milk
1.75 - 2 cups all-purpose flour

Mound flour on pastry board (or in a large bowl) and make hole in
center. Drop eggs in center hole and cut into flour with knife or
fork. Add salt and water; knead until firm and smooth. Place bowl
in covered bowl and allow to rest for ten to fifteen minutes. Roll
out dough to one-eighth inch thickness. Cut out circles with a
cup, glass, or doughnut cutter (we've found 4.5 to 5 inches ideal

(like turn-overs).


Cabbage Filling (makes enough filling for approx. four dozen pierogi)

1 head cabbage
7 cans sauerkraut (10 oz. cans)
1 small onion
1 clove garlic
10 Tablespoons butter

Parboil cabbage in boiling water for ten to fifteen minutes. Rinse,
drain, cool, and thoroughly wring moisture from cabbage and
sauerkraut; set aside. The drier the cabbage and sauerkraut the
less time required to complete cooking. Saute onion and garlic in
2 Tbsp. butter. Add cabbage and sauerkraut and remainder of butter;
cook for approximately one half hour or until cabbage is soft and
mixture is "reasonably" dry. It is important that the mixture not
be too moist in order to prevent wetting dough during the filling
process ... wet dough will cause pierogi to break open during
cooking!

Allow mixture to stand in refrigerator (in covered bowl) for twenty
four hours prior to filling pierogi dough.


Cheese Filling #1

1 cup cottage cheese, dry
1 egg yolk
3 Tablespoons Sour Cream
salt and pepper

Cream cheese with egg yolk; add salt and pepper to taste. If filling
is too thick, add sour cream.


Cheese Filling #2

1 cup dry cottage cheese
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon sugar
2 egg yolks or (1 egg and 1 egg yolk)

Force cottage cheese through sieve. Mix with other ingredients
thoroughly.


Beef filling

1 large onion, sliced
2 Tbsp margarine
1 3/4 c ground beef or.turkey
3/4 c cooked rice
2 tsp instant bouiillon or meat extract
3 Tbsp hot water
1 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley

Saute onion in margarine. Stir in meat and rice. Dissolve bouillon in
hot water. Add to meat mixture with parsley and salt+pepper to taste.


Sausage Filling

10 oz. polish sausage (kielbasa) skinned and chopped
1/2 c grated cheese or chopped mushrooms or both
1/4 c fine dry bread crubs
1 egg

I like to fry the kielbasa in a pan before mixing it all together,
but my original recipe says don't cook it.


Cooked Fruit

2 cups pitted cherries, blueberries or apples
3/4 cup water
1/3 c sugar (optional)
1/2 tsp cinnamon or cardamom
1 tsp lemon juice
2-4 Tbsp dry bread crumbs

Combine fruit water and sugar in saucepan. bring to boil. Simmer
until fruit is tender and water is almost gone. Remove from heat.
mash slightly with potato masher. Add cinnamon and lemon juice.
Cook and stir over low heat until thick. Stir in enough bread
crumbs to further thicken.
