Everytime she makes them, someone tells her she should sell them. Every time we have a family gathering, it's the first question anybody asks "Is there going to be perogies?!" It's what I want my wedding buffet to consist of. Gramma's perogies are the stuff of legends - not just in my family, but in anyone's family that has had the pleasure of chewing them. If I'm not making myself clear: these are best perogies you will ever eat.
Warning: consuming the perogies can, and will, cause addiction, the need to lay horizontal and 'rog-rage' (the feeling you get when there's no more)
This past Christmas holiday, I asked my Gramma if she would not only share the recipe with me, but give me lessons on how she does it. We invited bf and his mom along to learn from the Rogie Master, and we made a night of it. I was so looking forward to learning this family tradition, ALMOST as excited as I was to eat the final product! My Gramma had just shown my uncle how to make them for Christmas dinner, since her arm was in a cast, making it impossible to roll out her infamous dough. We had them - they were...good...but something was different! I needed to know the technique so my kids, and their kids and their kids kids friends kids could all enjoy these marvelous pouches of cheesey joy.

Please enjoy this cherished family recipe - I promise it hasn't disappointed in over 75 years! and please let me know how they turn out, if you decide to have a perogie party of your own. Happy Perogying everyone- - and don't forget the sour cream!!
