Gee, my first thought was pierogies, but I figured you had enough after the last session...French onion soup is awesome on a cold winter day, makes the back feel better too...and those skins make a dye for the pysanky eggs...I have my mothers collection,beautiful.. Go for it WM! #9990300

Wm Nosal 2/19/2012 2:55:10 PM

The Onion Skins, COOL Designs

That sounds like a fun one! The Pysanky eggs are done with dyes and waxes...My mom's friend, made many of them for her. But pierogies were her thing. #9990841

This one came from my mothers Cook Book.


2 cups flour
1 egg Well Beaten
3/4 cups water, warm
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 Tsp Baking Powder

Don't Have To Stiff

2 cups mashed potatoes
2 tablespoons cooking oil
1/2 tablespoon onion, minced
3/4 cup cheddar cheese, grated
salt and pepper to taste
Combine water, egg and salt and add to 1 1/2 cups of flour. Mix well. Add and knead in the 1/2 cup until smooth and elastic. Brush with oil and set aside for 15 minutes.
Saute onion in oil, season and add to potatoes mixing well.

Roll out dough as for pie crust and cut out with a round cookie cutter. Place a round on the palm of our hand; place a spoonful fo the filling on it. Fold over to make a half-circle. Press the edges together with your fingers, making sure the edges are free from filling.

Have the edges sealed well. Wet Your Fingers It Will Seal Better Place the pyrohy on a tea towel, side by side, without touching one another; cover with another tea towel to prevent drying out. Drop into boiling salted water and stir with a aspoon to prevent from sticking to the bottom. Boil 4 to 5 minutes.
I Think They Float When Done ?

These can be frozen before cooking.

Good Luck John!
You Can Now Bake or Fry Them
