The dough came out great easy to work with and to roll out. The Pierogi dough did not fall apart when I boiled the pierogis as well. I highly recommend this dough - my wife could not stop talking about my homemade Pierogis!! Read More

This was good but not what I was looking for. I wanted something that really had that good homemade taste. This wasn't it for me a little more pasta like than pierogi if that makes sense. Anyway I found the dough I was looking for here. It's called Pierogi (Polish Dumplings). I didn't try the fillings I used my own but the dough was exactly what I was looking for. So if you don't like this dough try that one. Read More

I've been treyting to make a good pierogi dough for years and this is the first one that worked out great. Followed the directions explicitly including waiting the 2 hours before I rolled it out. I filled it with a homemade recipe of ravioli filling made with fat free cottage cheese and both my wife and myself were very impressed with the whole thing. Thank you so much. Read More

I'm not much of a recipe reviewer but this one has to be reviewed... If you're looking for stress relief this recipe is awesome. After having to add more water oil AND egg i was able to sort of knead this dough. 2 hours later I found myself in a fist fight with the dough. Literally... I had to physically beat it into submission to get it down to 1" thick. I'm not weak or feeble by any means but rolling this dough out was like trying to roll a live mammal out with a rolling pin. After an hour of vigorous rolling and about a pint of sweat I grabbed my trusty 9 000 year old dangerously sharp biscuit cutter. It wouldn't cut this dough... at all... So I grabbed a sharp knife and CUT the circles out. Now I'm a cook... Really seriously I own my own catering business so it's not as if I'm new to cooking. So why continue with this recipe? If a little pillow of potatoes didn't hit my tongue after all of this trouble there would be bloodshed. Anyway once the circles were cut I re-rolled them. Yes it seems as though the dough actually unflattened during the cutting process. The good news: the rest of the directions were perfect leaving me with FANTASTIC tasting pierogies. Incidentally I really needed the stress relief that came with beating the daylights out of the dough. If I EVER make this again I will include some extra ingredients a sledge hammer and a bottle of rum (for my consumption of course). Read More

This dough recipe is the best I have ever had. I add olive oil instead of veg. oil and once I start neading the dough add just a splash more and it makes the dough come together perfect. Now I need a good differant filling recipe. perfect..Thanks Read More

This recipe rocked! I was skeptical about the ingredients (oil) but the dough turned out soft and tender. I used the roller attachment for the Kitchen Aid Mixer (at settings 1 and/or 2) and had all of the dough rolled out perfectly in less than five minutes. My Polish great Aunties would have been proud! This definately will be in my recipe box and passed around to family and friends. Read More

This dough was so easy to work with. I cheated a little and I made the dough in my bread machine on the dough cycle--even easier! My mom said the pierogis tasted like they were made by a little old Polish lady! Read More

This was so good!! I used to love eating the frozen store-bought pierogis but now I will make them! I used my own mashed potato and cheese recipe. My husband thinks these are great and he's never liked this dish. Read More
