For old-world comfort food, make pierogi wrappers out of egg, milk, flour and salt, stuff them with a simple blend of egg and cottage cheese, then cook in boiling water. Serve with warmed sour cream and crisp bits of bacon on the side.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup milk
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups drained cottage cheese
- 2 eggs
- 1 pinch salt
In a medium bowl, combine 2 eggs, milk, flour and salt and mix together to make a soft dough. Roll out thinly enough to make about twelve 4 inch squares. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of slightly salted water to a boil.
In a medium bowl, combine cheese, 2 eggs and salt. Mix together and fill dough squares with cottage cheese mixture. Pinch sides together to seal and drop in boiling water. Cook for about 8 to 10 minutes or until the squares rise to the water's surface.
