Pierogi II

Rated as 4.2 out of 5 Stars

"These are dough pockets filled with cottage cheese, boiled and served with sour cream gravy. My step-grandmother was Russian/Polish and she made these but we called them Vereneke. If desired, serve with sour cream that is heated but not boiling, and crisp fried bacon."
