Russian version of Pierogi apps. Quick, easy, and "freezable"! The size of the piecrust pkg is a guess. I'd use something like Jiffy piecrust mix. Also, if you have a potsticker former, you can use it to cut and fold these.

My mother-in-law makes these often, and they are absolutely delicious! She found the recipe in an old Pillsbury cookbook.
