      Title: Pierogi
 Categories: Polish, Pasta
      Yield: 6 Servings
 
      2    Eggs
    1/2 c  Water
      2 c  Flour
    1/2 ts Salt
 
  Mound flour on kneading board and make hole in center. Drop eggs into
  hole and cut into flour with a knife. Add salt and water and knead
  until firm. Let rest for 10 minutes covered with a warm bowl. Divide
  dough in halves and roll thin. Cut circles with a large biscuit
  cutter. Place a small mound of filling a little to one side on each
  round of dough. Moisten edge with a little water, fold over and press
  edges firmly together. Be sure they are well sealed to prevent the
  filling from running out. Drop the pierogi into salted boiling water.
  Cook gently for for 3 to 5 minutes. Lift out of water carefully with
  a perforated spoon. The dough has a tendency to dry while you are
  working. A dry dough will not seal completely. We suggest rolling out
  a large circle of dough, placing small mounds of filling far enough
  apart to allow for cutting, and folding the dough over the mounds of
  filling. Then cut with a small biscuit cutter and seal firmly. Never
  crowd or pile pierogi. The uncooked will stick and the cooked will
  lose shape and lightness. Note: Pierogi can be frozen after boiling
  and they keep well. I perfer all my pierogi fried in butter and
  onions and seasoned with salt and pepper. They should be fried on a
  medium low heat till golden brown. VARIETIES OF FILLING CHEESE: 1 cup
