This recipe is from my mother's cousin, who ran a small polish restaurant in our area for over 40 years! Really makes a difference to have the right dough!

Cut with a 4 inch circle. Put filling of your choice in center. Fold over and crimp to seal edges. Drop in a pot of boiling water until pierogi float to the top. Do not crowd pan to avoid sticking.
