I managed to get my hands on one of these perogy makers. A girl at work brought me one from her mom's stash. I have never used a perogy maker before so this will be a first. I like the idea of it and it does come with a recipe for dough and I think I'm going to give it a whirl. I think I'm going to spend Saturday morning making up the dough and rolling them in the afternoon. The recipe calls for chilling the dough for a couple of hours. Now I will need a new rolling pin as I think a good heavy rolling pin would help with this type of dough. Now for the filling, I am debating between a simple potato and onion or potato and cottage cheese or cheddar cheese. The only filling I haven't made before is the potato and cottage cheese.
I've volunteered to make perogies for Thanksgiving dinner so I thought rather than buy them from our local Ukranian Co-Op that I'd try to make them from scratch again. My problems with making them in the past have been that the amount of filling I can get in makes them a rather flat perogie and I like them to be a little on the plump side. I'll see how this gadget works.
While looking for an image to use I found a website that sells the maker if you are so inclined to give it a go.
