These were really good, but labor intensive. You MUST use white flour in the dough, or it just falls apart. The filling was very yummy. A mold for making the pierogis may help in making them look a little nicer.

  1. Bring water to boil and cook the potatoes until they are tender. Drain and mash in a medium bowl.
  2. Add the cheeses and lemon juice, mustard, dill and pepper. Mix well and set aside.
