"Very easy recipe to make, and a wonderful twist to an ordinary perogy. These cheese filled perogies taste great just boiled or fried with a little butter. Eat them with sour cream and you will have a wonderful dinner. You can easily double or triple the recipe and place extras in the freezer."

  1. In a medium bowl, mix together the cottage cheese, egg yolks, and 3/4 teaspoon of salt. Set aside.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, 1 teaspoon of salt, and baking powder. Pour in the vegetable oil and cold water, and mix or knead into a smooth dough.
  3. Roll dough out on a lightly floured surface, and cut into 3 inch circles using a glass, can, or cookie cutter. Place a spoonful of the cottage cheese filling onto each circle. Fold in half, and pinch the edges together to seal.
  4. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Carefully drop the perogies into the water, and cook for 3 to 4 minutes, or until they float. Remove from water with a slotted spoon, and place on a cooling rack set over a baking sheet to drain excess water.

This was a fantastic recipe. The dough was very easy to make and work with. I used Michigan brand cottage cheese (dark blue tub) as it has a very low amount of moisture in it and it has small ...

Like previous reviewer mentioned, they fall apart while cooking. I found that if you managed to close them without any leaking towards the edges (which was difficult) they stayed shut while cook...
