I forgot who gave me this easy recipe. I in think Chgo.About 1989.
It sure takes the work out of making them from scratch. If you like pierogies, you might like to try this recipe.
I have made them many times.... and the family can't get enough of them Warning: For a family of 4 , you might want to double the recipe!
