Vareniki (Pierogi) with Cherries
People often think of vareniki or pierogi as a savory dish, but these Vareniki (Pierogi) with Cherries are one of the most delicious sweet treats I can think of! I’ve made these dumplings for a light dessert at dinner parties and people adore them! I really advise that you put vareniki with cherries on your next party menu.
To make this vareniki with sour cherries recipe, start by combining cherries and sugar to make the vareniki filling. Prepare a pastry dough using eggs, sour cream, water, flour, sugar and salt. Knead and roll out the dough and using a cookie cutter or cup, cut the dough into circles. Place a spoonful of filling on each pastry circle and fold to create a scallop-edged dumpling. Cook in boiling water and serve warm with sour cream or jam. Yum!
