Homemade Pierogi Pictures

Savory Sight: Farmer Cheese Pierogi

We love coltkels's love and appreciation for Polish cooking and culture, and these homemade pierogi look and sound delicious.

My mom’s side of the family is Polish so each year we make pierogi and borsch. I’ve grown up making these every year and enjoying every part of the tradition. This tradition is one I don’t question but washing with silver on Christmas Eve for wealth is one I do, but of course you have to do it because to risk not getting that extra bit of luck because of skepticism is just now worth it. Simply put, we are Polish. We make cheese pierogi that the filling is made with farmer cheese and a kapusta filling which is made of sauerkraut and mushroom. The borsch is a mushroom borsch that had eight pounds of mushroom in it; yes you read right, eight pounds. The main ingredient in everything below is sour cream and of course butter. This is a Julia Child approved recipe because of the amount of butter we used.
