  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 cup mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Sour cream for serving


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour and salt. Make a well in the center and add the egg and warm water. Knead the dough until it is smooth and elastic, adding more flour if necessary. Cover the dough and let it rest for 30 minutes.
  2. While the dough is resting, heat the butter in a pan over medium heat. Add the diced onion and cook until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the sliced mushrooms and cook until they are golden brown. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Divide the dough into small pieces and roll each piece out into a thin circle. Place a spoonful of the mushroom and onion mixture in the center of each circle. Fold the dough over the filling and pinch the edges together to seal the pierogi.
  4. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Drop the pierogi into the boiling water and cook until they float to the surface, about 3-4 minutes.
  5. Remove the pierogi from the water with a slotted spoon and drain them on a paper towel.
  6. Heat a skillet over medium heat and melt some butter. Add the pierogi to the skillet and cook until they are golden brown on both sides.
  7. Serve the mushroom and onion pierogi hot with a dollop of sour cream on top.
