About this Recipe
Blueberry Pierogi are classic Polish dumplings filled with fresh juicy blueberries. They are the perfect lunch to make during the summer months.
- In a large bowl mix flour, butter, water, egg and salt.
- Knead the dough, wrap it in foil and set aside in the fridge for 30 minutes.
- Wash and rinse blueberries carefully and mix them with sugar to make the filling.
- Sprinkle a clean work surface with flour.
- Cut the dough in half and cover one piece with a damp cloth.
- Roll the remaining half of the dough into a thin disk about ⅛ inch thick. Flipping the dough over once or twice while rolling will make it easier to work with.
- Cut the dough into circles using a cookie cutter or drinking glass with a 7 or 8 cm (3”) rim.
- Add 1 tsp of the filling to the center of the dough round.
- Bring the edges together and pinch tightly to create a strong seal.
- Transfer finished pierogi to a floured cutting board and cover them with a damp cloth to prevent drying out.
- In a large pot, bring 4 liters of water (17 cups) to a rolling boil and add ¾ tablespoon of salt.
- Carefully place the finished pierogi in boiling water a few at a time.
- Once pierogi float to the top, cook them 4 minutes longer, then remove with a slotted spoon and place into a colander to drain.
- Repeat the process for the remaining half of the dough.
- Serve with sour cream on top.
