You just let us know which one you choose.

As for how many my recipe makes...um...I feed 4 hungry people and there are very few leftovers. Usually there are about 10 leftover, which makes a good lunch for Ken. I don't know a total number.

I, too, haven't had a pierogi in around 30 years, will be interested in your results, Pac!

I just went to Fatheads in Pittsburgh. I got polish sausage sandwich with kraut and pierogies on it. HOLY ****! TASTY stuff!

I'd make the potatoes regularly on the side and expect to have some extra. flavor about as many as you think you need for the pierogies. The rest can be potato pancakes.

Thanks Alix.

I will definitely halve the recipe then. I don't mind some leftover for the freezer, but not as many as it sounds that three cups of flour would give me. Plus I don't want to be standing there stuffing pierogi all day, lol.

This is going to be fun. This is totally new to me.
Thanks for all your input.

For us, making perogies is an event. We get several of us together and one person takes the dough rolling and cutting duty and the others sit and stuff them. The dough roller is also responsible for filling wine glasses and serving any food necessary.

At what time can I expect your dough roller?

The main reason I asked becasue you were so determend, or at least it sounded that way, to use egg. Like I said I prefer non-egg version and as the matter of fact the russian cooking site I belong to by far thinks "no eggs" in pierogy dough. But, alas, to each it's own.

I understand.
It's not so much being determined as it is I have to start somewhere. The easiest thing for me to nail down so far was whether or not to use eggs in my first attempt.
This is the dough recipe I'll be using.
