This delicate dough requires light handling but the tender results are worth the effort. Keep the perogies on a flour-dusted dish towel as they are assembled.

  • Portion size 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 (about 2 lb/900 g) potatoes peeled and cut in chunks
  • 3/4 cups Canadian Cheddar Cheese
  • 1 tablespoon butter softened
  • 3/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup warmed milk
  • 1 tablespoon vegetabIe oil
Topping:
  • 2 tablespoons butter melted
  • 1/4 cup sour cream

Method

In saucepan of boiling salted water, cook potatoes until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain and mash. Remove 1 cup to large bowl.

Stir Cheddar cheese, butter, 1/4 tsp of the salt and pepper into remaining potatoes. Let filling cool.

Stir flour, milk, oil and remaining salt into reserved potatoes, mixing well and adding up to 1/4 cup water if needed to make soft dough. Turn out onto lightly floured surface; knead until no longer sticky. Cover and let stand for 30 minutes.

On lightly floured surface, roll out dough to scant 1/4-inch (5 mm) thickness. Using 3-inch (8 cm) round cutter, cut into rounds. Place scant 1 tbsp filling on each round. Lightly moisten edge with water; fold dough over filling and pinch edge to seal.

In large saucepan of boiling salted water, cook perogies, in batches, until floating and tender, about 5 minutes.

Topping: To serve, drizzle with butter and serve with sour cream.

Makes 6 servings.
