Plum Vareniki (Plum Pierogies)

Share

Plums are my favorite fruit, and I love pierogies (vareniki), too, so this Plum Vareniki (Plum Pierogies) is one of my favorite recipes of all time. I love to drizzle sugar in between layers of the cooked pierogies to prevent them from sticking. The sugar melts and turns into a light syrup.

To make the pierogies, start by preparing the dough. Cover with plastic wrap until you are ready to use. Roll out pieces of dough and place two plum slices on half of the dough. Take care not to get plum juice on the edges of the dough, or it won’t stick together. Sprinkle sugar over your plums and bring the two sides together and pinch tightly to seal the edges. Cook in boiling water. Once cooked, sprinkle sugar in between the cooked pierogies to keep them from sticking. Serve as they are or with sour cream.

To make my Plum Vareniki (Plum Pierogies), you will need the following ingredients:

Steps to make Plum Vareniki (Plum Pierogies)

1

Make dough

2

Use the dough attachment to whisk together ⅓ cup of buttermilk, ½ a tablespoon of sour cream, 1 cup warm water, 1 large egg, and 1 teaspoon of salt in the bowl of an electric mixer, just until well blended. Add 2 cups of flour and mix on speed 2 until well incorporated.

2

Add remaining flour

20

Add the remaining 1 ½ cups of flour, half a cup at a time. Allow each addition to fully incorporate before adding more. Mix the dough for 15 more minutes. Add more flour 1 tablespoon at a time until the dough no longer sticks to the sides of the bowl. Mix for 5 more minutes, until the dough is sticky and elastic, but doesn’t stick to your fingers.

3

Cover and set aside

1

Cover the dough with plastic wrap and set aside until you are ready to use.

4

Make vareniki wrapper

1

Pull off a piece of dough (about the size of a gumball) and roll into a flat 3-inch circle. Sprinkle with flour as required to ensure the dough doesn’t stick to your work surface or the rolling pin.

5

Fill vareniki

1

Place two plum slices on one half of the dough circle. Sprinkle with ½ a teaspoon of sugar (depending on your preferred level of sweetness).

6

Shape vareniki

1

Bring the two sides of dough together and seal the edges by pinching together. Transfer to a well-floured cutting board.

7

Repeat

45

Repeat the process until all the dough and plums are used.
