Yesterday I decided to make pierogi.  Pierogi, for those of you who are wondering, are a traditional Polish dumpling filled with either fruit, mashed potatoes, meat, or a mixture of mushrooms and sauerkraut.  We make ours with sauerkraut and mushrooms.  We love pierogi!  I made pierogi once with my grandmother years ago and it was so fun to make them.  Making and eating them brought back memories for me.  They turned out fairly well, almost like my grandmother made.  The recipes I have now were written from memory, so a lot of the details are missing.  Mom and I had to remember them.  Now I have some pointers for next time.

And, of course,  I took pictures!

  1. My uncle always makes pierogis for our family Easter dinners, and I recently made them for the first time. So yummy. =) After looking at your pictures, I think I’m craving pierogis…
