Thursday October 8, 2016 is Pierogi Day.

“Anyone who has ever visited Poland, had a Polish friend or acquaintance, or even known someone whose grandmother was Polish has heard of pierogi. Pierogi are one of the most famous Polish dishes to ever exist, and virtually everyone worldwide treats the word as a synonym of Polish cuisine as a whole. And rightfully so—traditional pierogi are both delicious and filling, and there are many different kind to choose from, so everyone can find the pierogi that suit their tastes. From simple, potato and cheese-stuffed pierogi to pierogi stuffed with rare wild mushrooms or salmon, to sweet and tangy plum pierogi, this dish offers something to all. This is why pierogi are more than deserving of their own little holiday, the perfect day for you to enjoy the many varied flavors this dish has to offer.

Basic Polish Pierogi: .
3 cups flour
1 cup warm water
1 egg
750 grams of potatoes
2 large onions, finely chopped
1 tablespoon butter
250 grams farmer’s cheese
salt and pepper to taste
Peel the potatoes and boil them in salted water till soft, then drain and mash, set aside to cool. Cook the onion in the butter over medium low heat until fragrant. Add the farmer’s cheese to the potatoes, and the onions as well. Combine well, and add as much salt and pepper as you like. In another large bowl, combine the flour, the egg and the warm water, kneading until you have a smooth dough. Roll it out until it’s about 1/8″ thick and use a large glass to cut out circles of it. Place one large teaspoon of the filling in the middle of each dough circle and seal the circle well, using a bit if water if needed to make sure the edges stick. Cook in batches of 10-12 in salted water for 7-10 minutes or until they float to the surface. Now sit back and enjoy the taste of Poland!” ^sPm – #sharpharmade Fr ‘Days of the Year’
