You say Perogy, and I say Varenyky….The names for Eastern European dumplings can be very confusing, even the cause of some good neighbourly arguments! While in Canada, we might lump them all together as the familiar Polish perogy (pierogi or pirogi), each region differs. In Ukraine, boiled dumplings are called varenyky (from the Slavic “to boil”). Pyrohy, or pyrizhky are referred from “to bake” these are made with yeast dough or short crust dough filled with variety of fillings and are baked or deep fried. These irresistible boiled dumplings are best made with wild blueberries. The dough is quite stretchy and shrinks back a bit after cutting, so you will have to stretch it over the blueberries when filling.
