I'm from a small town in New Jersey where a number of Polish immigrants-including my parents-settled. My mother was a great cook who taught my lots of Polish recipes. This one, which we also call Polish Lasagne, I've adapted to use in my catering business. It's a real crowd-pleaser!

Directions

  1. To make dough, mix flour, eggs, sour cream, salt and water (a little at a time). Knead dough until firm and elastic; cover with a bowl and let rest 10 minutes. For potato filling, prepare potatoes; set aside. For cheese filling, combine ingredients and mix. Divide dough into three parts. On floured surface, roll dough to 1/8-in. thick; cut into 3-in. rounds with cutter. Place a small spoonful of filling in center of each round; fold and press edges together firmly to seal. Drop pierogi in simmering chicken bouillon with 1 teaspoon oil. Do not crowd. Simmer for 15 minutes, stirring gently with wooden spoon to prevent sticking. Remove with slotted spoon; drain well. Saute onion and butter until golden. Place drained pierogi in casserole and pour onion/butter mixture over all. Garnish with brown mushrooms. Yield: 7 dozen.

Reviewed Feb. 26, 2010

Close to the real thing but too salty and too creamy. A little tweaking and it was great!
