To Put together perogies.
Take a tsp of filling and place in the middle of individual dough circle.
Fold dough over filling and pinch sides closed.
As you go make sure to keep perogies moist after....spread table cloth below perogy on large area.
I use the kitchen table. Spritz another table cloth lightly with water and place over uncooked
and ready made perogy.
To Cook
In a large pot boil water.
Add perogy to the boiling water...not too many. Depending on the pot- usually 8-15 can go in.
Leave for 3 - 4 minutes stirring to make sure dough doesn't stick to the bottom of the pot.
