A Polish Christmas Pierogi

IMG_1274

Part of my family is Polish.  My great grandparents were from Poland.  So what we have on Christmas Eve is like a dumpling filled with potato and onion.  It’s not a dumpling though it’s called Pierogi.  This year my mom got diagnosed with Celiac’s.  It’s a big word that means she can’t have gluten.  So I had to make her a gluten free pierogi.  The dough was a lot grittier to work with but we put it together eventually.  My favorite family chef Melly Fanny helped me.  Here is a tip.  Make sure that everything that you use does not cause cross contamination.  For example, I had to use a different cutting board, counter space, rolling pin and towel than everyone making regular pierogi.  My mom thought they were good.
