Sorry md, no offense meant. It is just that the poster had a favorite recipe for the dough and wanted, well, a substitute.
Learned to make pierogi from a roommate who always used grandma's recipe, and it did not contain eggs.
Would invite several folks over and all would help cook. And would make a number of different types. Then sit down and enjoy.
Miss those wonderful meals.
We called them pierogi orgies, probably appropriate for when we were finished our bellies felt like what I can only imagine imagine nobels would have felt after a few days of feasting with King Henry VIII, or a Roman festival.
Am afreaid our debauchery ended at a few adult libations.
But I apologize md if you felt I was saying that your grandmother's recipe was second rate, and am sure the other posters did not mean it that way. People here are really great and friendly.
The word substitute usually means a replacement, and not one of lesser value.
Again no offense.
Welcome aboard, glad to have you here, and hope to hear from you more.
