For the Dough
2 1/4 cups all purpose flour, plus extra for dusting
1 tsp. salt
1 large egg, beaten
1 cup sour cream
1/2 stick butter, softened
For the Filling
5 medium Russett potatoes , peeled and boiled
1 lb. maple flavored bacon
1 large onion, chopped
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
Salt and pepper, to taste
In a large bowl combine the flour and salt. Add in the beaten egg, sour cream, and softened butter.
Mix for approx. 5 minutes, or until the ingredients are evenly distributed and the dough pulls away from the bowl. If your dough is still sticky you can add a bit more flour, and if too dry, add more sour cream.
Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and set in the refrigerator. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
Cook the bacon in a large skillet, crumble, and set aside reserving the bacon grease. Add the chopped onion into the bacon fat and cook over medium heat until soft and brown, stirring occasionally, about 30 minutes.
Place boiled potatoes in a large bowl and add in the crumbled bacon, cheddar cheese, and the caramelized onions (Reserve some for topping). Add salt and pepper to taste.
Roll the filling into approx. 1″ balls.
Remove the dough from the refrigerator and roll out on surface to about 1/8 inch thick. Using a circular cookie cutter or the top of a glass cut the dough into circles.
Place one ball of filling on each cut out and fold the dough into a semi circle around it. Using the tines of a fork, press together the edges of the dough to seal it together.
Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add the pierogi. Boil them until they float to the top. Remove them from the water with a slotted spoon and allow to dry.
Heat the remaining onion/bacon juices in the original pan. and add 2 tsp. of butter. Place a few Pierogis to the pan at a time and fry until crisp.
Garnish with chopped green onions.
Serve with sour cream (optional)
