Serves 12 | Prep Time 25 | Cook Time 15

Ingredients

5 tablespoons butter (homogeneous)
5/6 cup chopped onion (heterogeneous)
1 1/2 cups sauerkraut, drained and minced (heterogeneous)
salt (compound)(NaCI)
pepper (heterogeneous)
2 cups cold mashed potatoes (homogeneous)
3 eggs (heterogeneous)
1 (8 ounce) container sour cream (homogeneous)
3 cups all-purpose flour (homogeneous)
1/4 teaspoon salt (compound)(NaCI)
1 tablespoon baking powder (homogeneous)


To prepare the sauerkraut filling, melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the onion, and cook until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the drained sauerkraut and cook for an additional 5 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper, then remove to a plate to cool.


For the mashed potato filling, melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the onion, and cook until translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir into the mashed potatoes, and season with salt and white pepper.


To make the dough, beat together the eggs and sour cream until smooth. Sift together the flour, salt, and baking powder; stir into the sour cream mixture until dough comes together. Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface until firm and smooth. Divide the dough in half, then roll out one half to 1/8 inch thickness. Cut into 3 inch rounds using a biscuit cutter.


Place a small spoonful of the mashed potato filling into the center of each round. Moisten the edges with water, fold over, and press together with a fork to seal. Repeat procedure with the remaining dough and the sauerkraut filling.


Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pierogies and cook for 3 to 5 minutes or until pierogi float to the top. Remove with a slotted spoon.

Notes

Pierogies are a traditional Polish food that are delicious. My grandfather is Polish, which makes me a quarter Polish.
