Do you make your own? I've only had frozen Mrs T's pierogies but I do love them.

I used to eat at a deli close to where I worked that had pieroskis. I've never seen them at delis anywhere else and I'm sure not going to try to make them. Whole 'nuther animal.

I had the Deluxe chicken dinner from the deli, a leg and thigh with mashed taters, cream gravy and coleslaw. Shrek had eggs and hash browns.

Andy, that sounds DELICIOUS right about now. Especially with this cold rainy weather that we are having today.

I tried making Wonton Soup once and it never takes like the Chinese restaurants that we go too... One of the main reasons I love going to our local chinese place. Do you mind sharing your recipe?

My SIL and her family makes them every Christmas Eve day. Unfortunately, we're never in the same state when she does it.

I used to do food demos at a grocery store that had an in-store cooking school. As employees, we were allowed to take a couple classes a year for free. I took the pierogi making class. IMO it's all about the dough. The recipe our instructor used was wonderful: tender, yet didn't break apart; easy to work with; just perfect. I had kept that recipe magnetized to the side of my refrigerator for years, until I put it in a "safe place" when we moved. So safe I haven't been able to find the recipe in 13 years.

A woman who was semi-famous for her now-closed pierogi store (Parma Pierogis - Bill Clinton ate there) also took the class. Mary said she went to every pierogi class there was and never left without learning one new thing.
