Cookbook:Pierogi/Cheese Filling

Cookbook | Ingredients | Recipes | Poland


  • 8 oz. farmer's cheese (a soft, NOT a hard cheese) (if unsalted add 1 tsp. salt)
  • 4 oz. cream cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbs. flour


Mash together all of the ingredients until well mixed.


Farmer's cheese is similar to a dry-curd cottage cheese and is unavailable outside predominately Eastern European and Jewish areas. Dry-curd cottage cheese is a sub-par substitution, and must be drained of all excess liquid if it is to be used.
