Potato and Cheese Filling
Ingredients
2 large baking potatoes, peeled and cubed;
½ cup cream cheese;
2 tablespoons butter

Directions
Boil potatoes until tender. Drain and add cheese and butter, smash till smooth, like thick mashed potatoes, season with salt and pepper. Refrigerate before use.

Dough Recipe
Ingredients
2 cups all purpose flour,
1 egg,
½ cup warm water,
1ts. salt,
2 tbs. oil OR 1 tbs. sour cream

Directions
Mix all ingredients together lightly in a bowl. Knead until smooth. Let rest, covered, 30 minutes. Using half of the dough at a time, roll out to 1/8-inch thickness. Cut circles with biscuit cutter or floured glass. Fill with a golf-ball sized hunk of filling, pinch to seal (make sure they are sealed very well). Drop into boiling water; boil 5-8 minutes, until floating.

Serve with sour cream, fried onions or fry cook pierogi in butter until crisp.
