“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.”

This is quite an old, "traditional" Russian food. "Pirogi" simply means "pie." If you make a regular pie, this is the word you should use. Pirogi are usually baked. "Pirozhki" is a diminutive word for "pirogi" and means "little pie" or can even be equated with the word for a "turnover." These can be baked or fried. "Vareniki," usually refers to a type of a dumpling or the preparation of "pirozhki" by boiling. Russian vareniki are boiled and then, sometimes after that, are also quickly fried in butter so tat they don't stick together as much.

This made very delicious pierogis but I found the dough difficult to work with, as I have carpel tunnel and it was nearly impossible to combine on my own. I would imagine a kitchen aide mixer with a dough attachment would make this a breeze, I wish I woulda been warned!
