Check out Hannah and Helen’s recipe for the Polish dish of Pierogi’s! Keep sending your family’s wonderful recipes!

Pierogi are filled dumplings of Central and Eastern European cuisine, made by wrapping dough around a savoury or sweet filling and cooking in boiling water.


 300 g wheat flour
 pinch of salt
125 ml boiling water
 1 egg
 20 g butter


Pour the flour into a bowl, add salt.  Put butter in boiling water and melt, gradually pour into flour, mixing everything with a spoon.
In the meantime, add a beaten egg and use all ingredients to knead a smooth dough (knead for around 6-7 mins).

Wrap in foil and let stand for about 30 minutes.
Divide the dough into 4 parts and roll out thin (about 2-3 mm), covering the board with flour if dough is sticking.

Cut small circles out (use cup or glass) stretch them a little in your fingers, then apply filling (we have use blueberries and cherries- remember to remove the pits from cherries) .  Fold in half and stick the edges tightly together, place on the board.
 In a big pot, boil lightly salted water and put in the first batch of dumplings (10-15)

Reboil (on medium heat)  for about 2 minutes counting from the time dumplings surfaced (until the dough is soft).
The length of cooking depends on the thickness of the dough. Pick out with a slotted spoon on a plate and ENJOY!
