Yield: 1 Servings

1 cup Sour cream
2 \N Eggs
1 tablespoon Oil
1 teaspoon Salt
2½ cup Flour
2 \N Egg yolks
1 tablespoon Butter
1 pounds Farmers cheese; (solid cottage cheese), mashed
¼ teaspoon Salt
1 tablespoon Sugar




Beat the first 4 ingredients. Mix in the flour, adding more flour if necessary., until the dough forms a soft ball. Divide dough in half. On a floured board, roll each half of the dough into a thin sheet. Cut circles in the dough with a cutter 3½ -4 inches in diameter.

Cheese filling: Cream yolks and butter. Combine with other ingredients and mix. Put 1 teaspoon of filling on each dough circle, being careful to place it off center. Moisten the rim of the circle with water. Fold the unfilled side of the circle over the filling and press the edges of the resulting crescent firmly to seal them. Drop the pierogi into boiling salted water.

Cook gently for 5 minutes. Remove with perforated spoon. Serve with melted butter and sauteed onions.

Note: Never crowd or pile pierogi: uncooked pierogi stick to each other; when crowded or piled, cooked pierogi become misshapen and heavy Yield: 6 servings
