Homemade Perogies Recipe

Prep, Set, Cook Time

Prep time: 30 min
Cook time: 24 hours
Ready in: 24 hours 30 min
Yields: Nice dough

Ingredients for Perogy Dough

  • 4 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 cups cold water

Perogy Dough

  1. Mix the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Add the oil and up to 2 cups of cold water to mix until it is JUST wet.
  2. Let it sit overnight on the counter. It will be nice and pliable when you make the fresh perogies the next day.

Potato Filling

Cook 6 large potatoes in boiled salted water, mash with 1/2 cup - 3/4 cup grated cheddar cheese and salt. Store in airtight container in fridge overnight.

Homemade Perogies

Next day, roll out the dough onto lightly floured board and use a round cutter (or if you do not have one, I used a small glass) to make circles from the dough. Fill with a spoonful of potato filling being careful not to overfill. Pinch the ends with your fingers and set on a baking sheet.

Freeze the ones that you not cook.

Boil and cook perogies in salted water until they float to the top. (5-8 minutes)

Melt butter on non-stick frying pan, add chopped onions, and drained cooked perogies.

Serve with sour cream.

Sounds delicious. I've never tried them. Maybe I will now.

Great recipe. Most pierogi are filled with potatoes mixed with cheese or onions but not my mothers. She used dry cottage cheese mixed with chopped chives and and bound with an egg. I have never heard of anyone else who makes them that way.

Yummy. I love perogies with a little butter and onions. It never occurred to me that they could be made from scratch. This doesn't look too hard. Maybe I'll give it a try.

Good recipe!

It's a bit of work but the taste is the true reward. Get friends together for a perogy making party and it'll feel like less work and more fun.

My kids love perogies that you buy frozen in the store. I will have to have them try this recipe in our adventure of getting rid of convenience foods! Thanks for the recipe!

Get the kids involved in the perogy making. It's a family fun activity for all ages. You can roll and cut, have them scoop and pinch the perogies.
