Friends & Family Series: Kate's Homemade Perogies

Hi Guys! I'm on vacation right now so I've asked my friends and family to step in while I'm away!  Each day that I am gone, I will be sharing a recipe from one of my friends or family members.  I started this project with no clear goals, I was just hoping to fill a few of the recipe gaps while I was away.  I received an overwhelming response from everyone, and I am truly honoured and excited to be able to share with you so many great recipes made by so many of my favourite people!  Please enjoy their recipes and be sure to leave them comments at the end of their posts! 

Meet my friend Kate.  She is one of the funniest ladies I know and I seriously laugh my face off every single time we hang out! She has an equally hilarious husband and 4 children who are all a lot of fun to be around! We try to get together for coffee every couple of weeks and we always end up making something together (in fact, we're working on a puff pastry recipe right now!). Her youngest daughter Grace loves hanging out with us while bake up yummy treats (she especially loves the part where we get to sample the goods - she is an excellent official taste tester).   Kate knows how to make perogies, so we decided to have a perogie making day a couple of weeks back during one of our coffee dates.   She was gracious enough to agree to share her recipe on the blog as part of this friends and family post!  

- 1 egg
- 2/3 cup boiling water
- 1/4 cup oil
- 1 tsp cold water
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 1/2 cups flour
For Filling 
- 1-2 containers of dry cottage cheese
- 1 egg
- salt & pepper to taste
Dough - Let rest for 15 minutes.  Tempering Eggs (as long as it's slow enough that you don't cook the yolk). 
Mix egg with oil, cold water, salt with whisk.  
Add boiled water slowly to the egg mixture carefully as to not cook eggs (otherwise known as tempering).  
Add flour and mix with hands until dough is smooth consistency.  Cover with plastic wrap. 
 Let dough rest for 15 minutes.  
Roll out on floured surface until approximate 1/8"-1/4" thick.  Cut out with 3" round cookie cutter. 
Combine ingredients for filling and place a spoonful or so in each round of dough.  Seal the edges of the dough with a tiny splash of water, dabbing it along the edge with your finger.  Pinch the sides together to seal in the filling like so: 

That's it!  Prepare perogies your favourite way by either boiling, or boiling and then frying with onions and bacon. 

Perogies can be frozen - just be sure to freeze in layers and separate each layers with wax paper.
