After teaching my jewelry class this morning at Arts YOUniverse, I ventured into the kitchen to find Marie of Babushka Betty's selling her famous, homemade pierogies. Here's a plate of pierogies smothered in butter and onions that Marie was getting ready to serve . There's nothing like the taste of pierogies smothered in butter and onions.
Two weeks ago, I discovered Marie selling pierogies at Arts YOUniverse, and I was thrilled to find her because Marie and her family used to make the pierogies for St. Joe's bazaar in Hudson every year. I purchased two dozen of the potato and cheese and two dozen of the farmers cheese for my Christmas Eve dinner. I couldn't trust myself with the pierogies in my freezer, so I put them in Mom's freezer until Christmas Eve.
Marie's recipe is to die for (just like Mom's recipe), and Marie does not skimp on the filling! If you're looking for homemade pierogies, give Marie a call at (570) 824-4794.
Also, check with Arts YOUniverse because Marie will be selling pierogies there on selected Saturdays and Wednesdays.
PS - Marie makes her farmers cheese pierogies with a touch of salt (not sugar). I never understood that sugar thing with farmers cheese. Where did that come from?
