Yield: 2 Servings


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon canola oil
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ cup sour cream
  • ¼ cup warm water
  • 1 egg, beaten with a fork

  • Potato Filling:
  • 1 large Yukon gold potato
  • ¼ cup softened goat cheese
  • 1 small red onion, minced and sautéed
  • 1 teaspoon chopped chives
  • 2 ounces heavy cream
  • Salt and pepper

    Caramelized Onions:
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 3 Tablespoons butter

    To Assemble and Serve:

For the Dough:
Combine flour, salt, and baking powder in bowl and mix well. Add wet ingredients and knead by hand or with a dough hook in a Kitchen Aid for 8-10 minutes.

For Potato Filling:
Peel, boil, and mash potato by hand. Cool. Add remaining ingredients, then add heavy cream as needed to adjust consistency (consistency should resemble stiff mashed potatoes). Season with salt and pepper.

For the Caramelized Onions:
Slowly cook onion in butter over very low heat. Season with thyme, salt, and pepper.

For the Truffle Crème Frâiche:
Combine all ingredients.

To Assemble and Serve:
Roll dough into 1/8 inch-thick sheets and cut into 2 inch circles. Place heaping teaspoon of filling onto each circle and fold into a half-moon shape. Seal with beaten egg. Gently sauté pierogies in olive oil. Top with onions and crème frâiche.
