I was pleasantly surprised that they turned out just as good as my Grandma's recipe. I followed the prior advice and reduced the amount of sugar though, about a tablespoon, and had to work the dough a bit with splashes of water, but definitely not that difficult. I was also relieved that the farmers cheese was not pricey at all, as stated below. In fact it was quite inexpensive for what it is, only $3.99 for the 16oz tub. I was expecting it to be like $8 or $10. I'm definitely keeping this recipe on hand and will be using it a lot! I really missed Gma's pierogis ??
