I love having some pierogies when I am in the mood for cozy, comforting food, especially in the winter!

Never had one before? Essentially pierogies are dumplings made with unleavened dough wrapped around a sweet or savory filling. They can be cooked in boiling water and often pan-fried. Traditionally they are served with some sour cream and applesauce!

Originally pierogies came from Central and Eastern Europe before being brought to the United States through immigrants. Pierogies have become a popular food here now and it is easy to find frozen ones in the grocery store.
