I took my traditional Polish background, put a twist on perogies then filled them with couple of my favorite ethnic (Indian,Thai,and yes even Italian) foods. This very tender dough is made of fresh carrot juice. These packets can be frozen for 2-3 months. Freeze individually on cookie sheet then place into freezer bags. All your taste buds will will come alive! Make smaller for appetizers then Instead of boiling you can deep fry them, for a crispy treat.
