Ingredients

For the pierogi dough: 
  • 1 pint sour cream
  • 5 cups flour
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
For the filling:
  • 1/2 pound ground beef
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 pound soft farmers cheese
  • 2 tablespoons minced shallots
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup green onions, chopped
  • 1 whole egg
To finish:
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh parsley leaves
  • 1/2 cup sour cream

Directions

For the dough: In a large mixing bowl, combine the sour cream, flour, butter, 2 whole eggs, egg yolk, 2 teaspoons salt and olive oil. Knead the mixture into a soft dough. Divide the dough in half and cover for 10 minutes. On a floured surface, roll each half of the dough into a thin circle, 1/4-inch thick. Cut the dough using a 3-inch circle cutter. For the filling: Season the beef with salt and pepper. In a saute pan, render the ground beef for 3 minutes. Remove from the pan and drain on a paper-lined plate. In a mixing bowl, combine the cheese, ground beef, shallots, garlic, green onion and egg. Mix well. Season with salt and pepper. Place 1 tablespoon of the filling in the center of each circle of dough and fold over. Press and seal into half-moon shapes. Use a little water to seal the pierogi's. In a pot of boiling, salted water, cook the pierogi for 8 minutes, or until they float. Remove from the water and drain. In a saute pan, melt 2 tablespoons of the butter. Sear the pierogi for 2 to 3 minutes on each side, or until they are golden brown. Remove from the pan. The pierogi will need to be sauteed in batches. Arrange the pierogi's on a platter. Garnish with parsley and serve with sour cream.
