How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Combine all dipping sauce ingredients. Cover; refrigerate until serving time.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine all dough ingredients in bowl; beat on medium speed until well mixed. Knead dough 3-5 minutes on lightly floured surface, adding additional flour as needed to form soft and pliable dough. Cover; let rest 10 minutes.

  3. STEP 3

    Place mashed potatoes and cheese into bowl; mix well. Set aside.

  4. STEP 4

    Roll out dough to 1/8-inch thickness on lightly floured surface. Cut dough with 3-inch round cookie or biscuit cutter. Place 1 heaping teaspoon potato filling in center of each dough round. Fold in half; seal edges tightly.

  5. STEP 5

    Bring water and salt to a boil in large stockpot. Add pierogi; cook 3-5 minutes or until pierogies float. Remove with slotted spoon or drain in colander.

  6. STEP 6

    Melt 2 tablespoons butter in 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until sizzling. Add half of pierogies. Cook, turning once, 6-10 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pan; keep warm. Repeat with remaining butter and pierogies.

  7. STEP 7

    Serve with dipping sauce.
