Every time I ask my friend Miriam what she is preparing for Yom Tov, she answers “my mother’s pierogies.” I finally got tired of hearing how delicious they are without getting so much as a taste, so I called her over to my house and invited her to make some in my kitchen. They’re a bit time-consuming to make, making them the perfect side dish to prepare in advance, before the Yom Tov rush hits. This way, when Yom Tov rolls around you’ll have a fantastic addition to enhance your Yom Tov meal.
Pick your choice of filling and have it ready before you make the dough. You may have a little or a lot of filling left over, depending how many batches of dough you will make.
