Plum Vareniki (Plum Pierogies)
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.
