Polish Mini Pierogis aka Uszka

Serves: 6-8

Time: 2 hrs

A lovely woman from Poland sent me the recipe below and said these were a favorite of hers. Several years having passed since the first pelmeni debacle I was willing to try them. Plus, they are served in the Polish version of borsch and I was already planning on making that over the weekend. Clearly, the stars had aligned. So why not I thought. I googled around to see a number of different uszka recipes and generally learn more about them. The recipe below is what I consolidated everything on. And this time it worked! Happy dance. These were AMAZING. Light, tasty and plain adorable. They look like the picture of every expertly made pelmeni that I’ve ever seen. I am totally making these again with different fillings. On a day when I have lots of time.
