Total Time : 60


Serves 4

  • 1cup sour cream

  • 2 1⁄2 cups unbleached flour

  • 1tablespoon melted butter

  • 1 egg

  • 1 egg yolk

  • 1teaspoon salt

  • 1teaspoon olive oil

  • 1lb cherries, stemmed washed and pitted but you don't have to pit them

  • 1lb wild berries, mixture of strawberries, blue berries, black berries, raspberries

  • 1tablespoon brown sugar, heaping

  • 1⁄2 cup butter

  • 1⁄2 cup heavy cream

  • 1⁄4 cup sugar


  • 01

    In a large bowl combine the sour cream, flour butter, egg an yolk, salt and olive oil. Knead the mixture into a soft dough.

  • 02

    Divide the dough in half and cover for 10 minutes.

  • 03

    In the meantime fill a large pasta pot with water add a little salt (like you would with pasta) and bring the water to a boil then reduce heat to a simmer.

  • 04

    If you are using Wild Berries, in a bowl toss the berries with a heaping spoon of brown sugar and set aside.

  • 05

    On a floured surface roll each half of the dough into a thin circle ¼ ? thick. Cut the dough using a 3 ? 4 inch circle cutter (I just use a drinking cup ) re-roll scraps.

  • 06

    To assemble just place 3 cherries in the middle of the dough circle ( or 1 Tbsp wild berries).

  • 07

    Use a little water on the edge (just dip a finger in a bowl of water and run over edge just to help seal).

  • 08

    Fold the circle in half and pinch the edges to seal, continue until all the pockets have been filled.

  • 09

    Bring the heat up on the water to medium cook 6-8 perogies at a time about 5 minutes until they float.

  • 10

    Remove with a slotted spoon to a colander so they drain while the others are cooking.

  • 11

    In a non-stick pan melt some of the butter and sear 6-8 perogies at a time until they just start to golden.

  • 12

    Remove to a serving plate.

  • 13

    Drizzle with heavy cream and sprinkle with a sugar.

    * Note if you have small children its a good idea to pit the cherries.
