    I love sweet perogies. I have had blueberry and strawberry dessert preogies but never plums. I will have to wait until the next plum season to try these out, but I will salivate in the meantime looking at your photos. :)

    That could get you through until plum time, and actually, I haven’t tried making them but I bet a cranberry pierogi would be good too. Hmmm, you’ve got me dreaming about all kinds of pierogi now…. :-0

    Ooo, this looks so good! I’ve never had a pierogi before. Is it kind of like an empanada?

  4. Chris says:

    Hi Roxan,
    Thank you for your question- Are you familiar with “pot-stickers”? They are almost the same…just boiled in water like gnocchi, and not fried in a pan.
    There are both sweet pierogi and savory ones. Vegan savory ones are usually made from mushrooms or cabbage either red or white or from sauerkraut also.
    They a kind of a pasta dough, that are made in the shape of a empanada and boiled. All vegan sorts (sweet or savory) are very tasty :-)
