Whole 'nuther animal.
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.
