Makes 3 dozen pierogies.
Ingredients - Dough:
2 ½ cups flour
¼ tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
1 cup boiling water
¼ cup butter
Combine butter and boiling water. Add in flour, baking powder and salt. Mix all ingredients together and knead until smooth.
Ingredients - Filling:
¼ of an onion
1 tbsp canola oil
¼ cup butter
Salt & pepper to taste
Chop onion finely. Add canola oil to chopped onion and microwave for 1 ½ minutes. Add onion mixture to boiled potatoes along with butter and salt & pepper. Mash everything together.
Roll dough to 1/8 inch thickness on lightly floured surface. Cut dough into 3 inch rounds. Take each round, stretch it out slightly and spoon 1 tbsp of filling into the middle. Fold the dough over the filling and pinch the edges together to seal. Repeat with remaining dough and filling.
