Daring Cooks: Pierogies

The August 2010 Daring Cooks’ Challenge was hosted by LizG of Bits n’ Bites and Anula of Anula’s Kitchen. They chose to challenge Daring Cooks to make pierogi from scratch and an optional challenge to provide one filling that best represents their locale.

This month's challenge, I decided to put a bit of my own twist on this challenge. Instead of the traditional perogi filled with cheese, potatoes, and bacon. I used ingredients from my garden.

I guess you can called these Chinese pierogies. These were quite tasty. Husband was quite thrilled with them too. I made so many, I have a freezer full of them now. Perfect for days when I don't feel like cooking.
