My youngest son bought me a dough press for my birthday and I just had to try it out.What better way then with perogies. I found a recipe on another site but changed it to suit my tastes. The results were wonderful. These take a little time to make so it is not something you can just do on the spur of the moment but the work is well worth the wait!
