Recipe: Pierogi

These delicious boiled then fried pillowy dumplings are delicious and pretty easy to eat. They’re especially good because they can be made in large batches ahead of time and frozen. I filled them with the usual onions and mashed potatoes but you can put anything in them, even sweet things.
