Sour cream use in Pierogi dough?

I always read pierogi recipes when I see them. I have yet to see ANY with sour cream used as an ingredient in the dough. The recipe that I have (given to my mother, from my father's Mother.) uses sour cream. They taste delicious.

Anyone ever heard of this?

Must be a family recipe? I have never seen or had pierogi dough with sour cream. It would change the consistency of the dough. Sour cream is used as a condiment to top it off.

I made some yesterday finally.. I put about 5-6 tablespoons sourcream into about 3-4 cups of flour..(plus a couple eggs, salt, water) did the mash with mushrooms, onion, and sauerkraut. boiled them and then sauteed in butter and onion to brown them just before eating.. like my grandmother used to do.

I am now on my second day of peirogi diet and very happy. :))

my grandmother said that she never used sour cream in her pierogi dough in Poland but does do that here to make the dough softer.

Yes, this makes the tenderest pierogi dough known: 2 cups flour, 1 cup sour cream and 1 small egg. That's all there's to it! Also 1/2 teaspoon of salt.

I know a good idea when I hear one. Anyone who never put sour cream in should consider it IMAO.

I love pieogys and had some really good ones at a church bazaar the other day and am looking up recipes. Seems about 1/3 if them use sourcream in the dough. I would imagine it would make a nice tender dough and not so floury and gluey. Think buttermilk pancakes or sourcream cake... The ratios all seem very different some use alot of sourcream and some hardley use any.

Merged: Sour cream in Polish

Dear all,
I've been trying to find sour cream in the supermarket but am having a difficult time.
I see Twaróg and Śmietana and Keifer and have no idea which is used for which.
I'd like to use sour cream for baking, such as cheesecakes and etc, can anyone please enlighten me?

Also, I've heard that Polish cheesecake Sernik is made with quark cheese, which is Twaróg, but again, there's so many types of Twaróg to choose from. I'd really appreciate it if someone could help out.

Thanks a lot!

Smietana is sour cream.

There are 2 types. One is more runny and the other is more solid.
