  • 4 cups flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 8 tbsp unsalted butter 1 stick, softened
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup warm milk

For the filling

  • 8 oz sauerkraut
  • 4 oz mushrooms champignons chopped finely
  • 1/2 small onion chopped finely
  • 1 Tablespoon oil



  • Stir the flour and salt in a large bowl. Cut in the butter until mixture looks crumbly. Add in the eggs then milk and stir with a wooden spoon until mixture holds together.
  • Lightly knead in the bowl to smooth. Set aside.

Meanwhile you can make the filling:

  • Put the sauerkraut in a bowl
  • Put the mushroom in a dry skillet over high heat, cover with a lid. Once the mushrooms release the moisture, take off the lid and cook until the water evaporates.
  • Add in the oil and onion and saute over low heat for about 10 minutes. Once cool mix together with the sauerkraut
  • Roll dough out to ⅛"thickness (you may need to divide the dough in half and roll dough out at a time if your working area is small.)
  • Cut out circles using a cup 3" in diameter.
  • Place about a heaping teaspoon of filling in the centers and seal pierogi. Transfer to a floured tray and continue to work on the dough rolling out the scraps. (Tip: use a pierogi maker for quick and easy results or you can crimp with a fork.)
  • Freeze or boil in water for 3 minutes.
  • To cook frozen: Boil in water for 3-4 minutes
  • sauté in butter until nicely seared (about 2-3 minutes.)
  • Serve with sour cream and garish with some chives
