Does anybody have a really good recipe to make homemade pierogis? I'd love to make some from scratch instead of just buying Mrs. T's, which are delicious but I want to be able to make my own because I love cooking stuff like that! I'd love to be able to stuff them with some interesting combinations of stuff too, like cheddar cheese ones or some with spinach inside or something like that.
There are lots of recipes out there and I haven't had the same one twice yet, so I'm not going to link to any.
What I WILL do, however, is recommend finding a good "maker"/mold. I highly recommnend this variety: Piergoi Maker
You just lay a sheet of dough down, drop in some filling on each spot, put on another layer of dough....and then roll with a rolling pin across the top. This seals each pocket and drops perfect pierogies out the bottom, ready for boiling and frying.
This is what my Ukrainian ex-boyfriend used to use and I haven't tried anything that's any better yet (even those little individual ones that seem so easy....they take forever!)
