Carrye’s Family serves these on Christmas Eve.  It is her Grandma Wielonski’s recipe. 


  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 Package of prepared mashed potatoes
  • Onions
  • Cheddar cheese to taste
  • 1 pound Sauerkraut
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Stir 2 beaten eggs into the flour; add oil and water.  Knead until smooth (extra flour may need to be added). Cover dough and set aside for 10 minutes.  Take a small portion of dough and place on a floured board.  Pat slightly into a flat circle, then roll out to a wider circle.  Cut out into small squares or circles.  Place about a spoonful of potato and cheese or sauerkraut mixture on each.  Wet edges and seal by pressing.  Put 3 or 4 pierogis into a softly boiling pot of water.  They will come to the top and cook for about 3 minutes.  Remove to wax paper to cool.  When all are cooked, wrap on wax paper, in small batches and then in towels if you are not going to use them for a few days.
  • Potato and Cheese Mixture: Using store bought mashed potatoes, add 2 onions which have been cut small and fried in butter.  Add cheddar cheese to taste.
  • Sauerkraut Mixture:  Rinse a 1 pound can of sauerkraut; cook in a small amount of water until tender.  Drain until it looks dry.  Add onions as above and salt and pepper to taste.


  • This is a rather complicated recipe and not as easy as it seems.
