    Homemade FCG Perogies

    Homemade FCG Cheese and Potato Perogies


    Potato and Cheese Filling
    1 tablespoon grated onion
    2 tablespoons butter
    2 cups cold mashed potatoes
    1 cup cottage cheese (or more) salt and pepper


    Perogie
    2 1/2 cups flour
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 egg
    2 teaspoons oil
    3/4 cup warm water


    Recipe


    1. Potato and Cheese Filling: Cook the onion in butter until tender.
    2. Combine it with potatoes and cheese.
    3. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
    4. Vary the proportions and ingredients in this recipe to suit your taste.
    5. Mix the flour with the salt in a deep bowl.
    6. Add the egg, oil and water to make a medium soft dough.
    7. Knead on a floured board until the dough is smooth.
    8. Caution: Too much kneading will toughen the dough.
    9. Divide the dough into 2 parts.
    10. Cover and let stand for at least 10 minutes.
    11. Prepare the filling.
    12. The filling should be thick enough to hold its shape.
    13. Roll the dough quite thin on a floured board.
    14. Cut rounds with a large biscuit cutter, or as most old-world grandmothers
    did, with the open end of a glass.
    15. Put the round in the palm ofyour hand.
    16. Place a spoonful of filling in it, fold over to form a half circle and
    press the edges together with the fingers.
    17. The edges should be free of filling.
    18. Be sure the edges are sealed well to prevent the filling from running
    out.
    19. Place the pierogi on a floured board or tea towel and then cover with
    another tea towel to prevent them from drying out.
    20. COOKING: Drop a few pierogies into a large quantity of rapidly boiling
    salted water.
    21. Do not attempt to cook too many at a time.
    22. Stir VERY gently with a wooden spoon to separate them and to prevent them
    from sticking to the bottom of the pot.
    23. Continue boiling for 3-4 minutes.
    24. The cooling period will depend upon the size you made it, the thickness
    of the dough and the filling.
    25. Pierogies will be ready when they are puffed.
    26. Remove them with a perforated spoon or skimmer to a colander and drain
    thoroughly.
    27. Place in a deep dish, sprinkle generously with melted butter to prevent
    them from sticking.
    28. Cover and keep them hot until all are cooked.
    29. Serve in a large dish without piling or crowding them.
    30. Top with melted butter- chopped crisp bacon and/or chopped onions lightly
    browned in butter.
    31. REHEATING: One of the great things about perogies, is that they can be
    made in large quantities, refrigerated, frozen and reheated without lost of
    quality.
    32. Many prefer reheated perogies as compared to freshly boiled ones.
    33. To re-heat, you can: 1) pan fry pierogies in butter or bacon fat until
    they are light in color or, 2) heat the pierogies in the top of a double boiler
    or in the oven until they are hot and plump or, 3) deep fry them.
