DIRECTIONS

  • Use a spoon to push the cheese through a fine sieve into a deep bowl.
  • Beat in the eggs, then the sugar and the butter.
  • Sift the flour over the cheese mixture and stir until the flour is completely absorbed.
  • Knead like bread to mix well.
  • Divide the dough into 3 equal parts and roll each between your palms to shape it into a ball, then, on a lightly floured surface, roll each ball into a 12" long cylinder (1" in diameter).
  • Wrap in wax paper and refrigerate until firm (30 minutes).
  • Flatten the cylinder slightly and cut them crosswise into 2-inch rounds.
  • In a 3-4 quart saucepan, bring water and salt to a boil over high heat.
  • Drop 6 pierogi into the water and stir occasionally so they don't stick to each other or the pan.
  • Immediately reduce the heat to low and simmer until they float to the surface (5 minutes).
  • With a slotted spoon, transfer the dumplings to a kitchen towel to drain.
  • Cover them loosely with another towel to keep them warm, while you cook the remaining pierogi in the same way.
  • In an 8-inch skillet, melt the butter, but don't let it brown.
  • Add the bread crumbs, stirring constantly, until they are crisp and golden brown, then remove from heat.
  • Pour the bread crumbs and butter over the dumplings and serve.
