Cooking equipment for making perogies


The following is the equipment I used for making perogies. Alternatively, you can mix the dough in a stand mixer. I don’t have one (yet!) so kneading by hand is my only option. Therapeutic at times. Another good tool to have is a food processor or mill of some kind to mince fillings even finer if you want to have a thicker, less chunky filling. This grinder shown below is the one we used to use back in the day to mix and make finer some of our fillings!

Back in the day, this was our food processor for our homemade perogy fillings

A very important tip: remember to remove all jewelry!! As well, clean, shorter fingernails are much easier to work with!

– large mixing bowl plus smaller bowls for fillings

– large clean table surface, or wooden board

– rolling pin

– 2.5-3 inch diameter round cutter (usually a smaller glass or round cookie cutter will work)

– baking sheet (to place perogies on as you make them)

– all purpose flour (to sprinkle on the surfaces on which dough and uncooked perogies will sit)

– bowls for fillings

– spoons to fill perogy

– Dutch oven or other medium to larger sized pot for cooking perogies

– slotted spoon

– frying pan (if frying perogies)

    You forgot to mention what you should do with curious children while you are making perogies and of course, what soundtrack best suits this activity?? What do you listen to when cooking?

      My little guy was asleep when I made these. Still too young to be involved and too busy running around the kitchen and around my legs when making these. Music? Usually the oldies!! Sometimes a polka tune!;)
