Cottage Cheese Perogies

Cottage Cheese Perogies


"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.

My Polish grandmother did her cheese perogies with dry-curd cottage cheese. She would also sprinkle a sugar/cinnamon mix over the dry-curd cottage cheese right before sealing the perogies !!!!!...

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...

You can make your own cottage cheese. Buy a half gallon of buttermilk. Cook it on low till you can spoon out curds.(It takes maybe 2 hours). Cook on high just till it boils, take off heat and le...

This is a great recipe! The baking powder addition makes the dough easier to roll out. Good idea. I beat lightly, together 1/4 cup of water + one egg and brush this onto my dough before filling ...

This batch of perogies is possibly the most wonderful food I've ever made by myself. I gave it a 4-star rating because it needs some adjustments to get it that way. After reading another review,...

Farmers cheese can be used in place of dry-curd cottage cheese. It's so much easier to find.

This is a good recipe although I believe it takes alot of practice to make a good seal on the perogies and handling the dough with ease. My Ukranian mother-in-law made wonderful perogies but af...

Well, for my first venture into perogies, this went very well. The mix was easy, so these did not take very long to do. Thanks. Boyfriend thinks they are awesome.
