Ingredients & Directions:

To make the yogurt cheese:
Wrap the yogurt in a double layer of cheesecloth. Tie both ends of cheesecloth and hang over a small bowl in refrigerator overnight to drain.

To make the pierogi:
Place flour in a large bowl, making a well in the center. Blend the rest of the wet ingredients together and pour them into the well. Gradually incorporate flour into wet ingredients until formed into a dough. Knead gently with your hands for a few minutes. Wrap and allow to rest for 5 minutes. Lightly flour flat surface. Using a rolling pin, roll out dough to about 1/8 inch thick. Cut out rounds. Brush a bit of water around the perimeter of rounds. Place scant tablespoon of G.V.O. yogurt cheese in center of each. Fold over, making a half moon shape. Boil in salted water for approximately 5 minutes.
