Fashion delicious piergi wrappers out of flour, eggs, sour cream, salt and water, then stuff them with a savory sauerkraut filling or a traditional potato and cheese filling. Cook in boiling water or freeze for later use.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 8 cups all-purpose flour
- 4 eggs
- 1 (8 ounce) container sour cream
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- warm water
- 1 recipe Sauerkraut Filling OR
- 1 recipe Potato Cheese Filling
In a large bowl, beat together eggs, carton sour cream, and salt. Stir in flour and warm water. Add water until dough feels like velvet. Turn out onto a lightly floured board, and knead until smooth. Roll out to a 1/8 to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut out 3 1/2 inch circles with either the top of a glass or a biscuit cutter. Cover with waxed paper to prevent drying out if not filling immediately.
Place 1 or 2 tablespoons filling on one side of a circle of dough. Fold over, and seal by pressing the edges with a fork. Repeat until ingredients are used.
Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Immerse pierogi. Cook until the dumplings float to the surface.
