Vegan Pierogi Dough

"A wonderfully easy pierogi dough. Fill with onion and potatoes, cabbage, or anything else you can think of. We have even made dessert pierogi using apple pie filling! (Prep time includes 30 minutes for dough to rest)."

Ready In:
1hr 15mins
36-40 pierogi




  • Mix all ingredients together in a medium sized mixing bowl, and knead until smooth (it will still be kind of sticky).
  • Let the dough rest in the bowl (covered with a towel) for 30 minutes.
  • Separate the dough into 2 parts.
  • Roll one half of the dough until about 1/8" thick.
  • Cut circles with a cookie cutter (i use a 3" cookie cutter).
  • Add a teaspoon or so of filling (depending on how big your circles are. Don't put too much, or they will be hard to close.
  • Fold the circles in half over the filling, and pinch closed. You can also press the edges with a fork to make sure they are sealed really well.
  • Roll out the other half of the dough, and cut, fill, and seal.
  • At this point you can freeze the pierogi for later, or you can cook them.
  • To cook, (do them in batches small enough to fit in your frying pan), boil them for a few minutes,just until they float, and then fry in oil or butter, until brown on either side.

  1. I am making pierogi with this recipe as i write this! So far they have turned out pretty decently!!! I made a double batch and I've got about 4 dozen made so far. My husband thought they were pretty good so hopefully my dairy-soy-egg allergic child will feel the same! I stuffed them with garlic mashed potatoes.
  2. That was awesome dough. I just tripled the recipe and made a load of pierogies to freeze. It is really good!
  3. I’ve made other polish recipes. This is the easiest I’ve made in years. Made about 2.5 dozens. I made with bread flour and added about 4 -8 Tbsp of water and drizzle of oil. Not sticky. Easy to use.
  4. Have not tried yet but was reading through reviews/comments. If you so desire the pierogi to have that “yellow” tint due to the egg, my suggestion is add a pinch of turmeric to the dough mixture. It won’t alter the flavor, but you’ll get that nice color. And I mean just a pinch.
  5. Such a simple, easy recipe! Thank you!!!


I'm a stay at home mum to a 2 and a 5 year old. We all have food allergies (except for DH) so cooking from scratch is pretty much the only way to go for us. I spend a lot of time researching recipes and modifying them to meet our needs.
