Homemade perogis

I absolutely love perogis, they’ve always been a favorite in our family.  This recipe is great for freezing and heating up later or cooking right away! This recipe makes about 45 and works well halved and doubled.

2. Make filling by peeling, dicing, and boiling potatoes, diced onion, and garlic until tender. Drain and partially mash. Add cheese and stir until melted. Add sour cream and seasonings and finishing mashing. Set aside to let cool.
3. Roll out dough 1/8 in, use a cutter to make 3 inch circles.

Elias had to make a giant perogi for him self, it was about 8 inches wide with a little more than a 1/4 of a cup of filling.
