Cabbage (Kapusta) Varenyky
Potato & Onion Varenyky
What are varenyky? They are the Ukrainian version of filled dumplings. People in North America are more familiar with a term “pierogi”. Commercially made pierogi are available in the frozen section of all major supermarkets in Toronto. I personally can’t eat the store-bought dumplings – they are too thick and heavy, and have no flavor. You can’t even taste any filling in them. The homemade varenyky are very delicate, with a thin dough and should have a good amount of flavourful filling.
Varenyky (or pierogi) are comfort food for many people across Eastern Europe and they are such a treat. We made these for our Christmas Eve Meal.
Many people have their own version of the dough but the one below is our favourite. Yields 20 to 22 pieces.
- 1 ½ cup all-purpose flour
- ¾ teaspoon salt
- ¾ cup hot water
