How to Make Mashed potato, bacon and onion pierogi

  2. Fry bacon but not too crisp...crumble bacon and add to mashed potatoes along with optional cheddar cheese and salt/pepper.
    Save bacon grease.
  3. Sautee diced onion in bacon grease until carmelized.
    Remove with slotted spoon and add to mashed potatoes and bacon.
    You are now ready to fill pierogi pockets.

    1 (8 ounce) container sour cream
    3 cups all-purpose flour
    1/3 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon baking powder

    Note: If dough is too thick add a couple of tablespoon of cold water until you reach pie dough like texture.

    On flour prepared rolling surface , roll out 1/4 of dough at a time ... using a cutter/lid approx 3 1/2 in diameter cut out dough cicles (makes approx 24 pockets) ... fill center of circles with approx 1 heaping tablespoon of mashed potato filling ... fold over circle and with applied egg wash on edges close pierogi pockets pressing down with fork all along open edges.
