Dough for 16 pierogi

One of Poland's most popular foods, probably because of its versatility, each "little pie" is hearty and pleasantly chewy. They're delicious stuffed with almost anything and can be served as a side dish, a main dish, or even as dessert. Here's a basic pierogi dough that we use in Potato Pierogi and Sweet Vanilla Cheese Pierogi.

How to Make It

Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour and salt in a large bowl. Combine sour cream, water, oil, and egg, stirring with a whisk. Add sour cream mixture to flour mixture; stir until combined. Turn dough out onto a floured surface. Knead until smooth and elastic (about 7 minutes). Place dough in a bowl coated with cooking spray, turning to coat top. Cover and let rest 15 minutes.
