  1. Does the gluten free flour have to have xanthan gum in it? I make my own mix, and I didn't add any. While the dough rolled out OK, it fell apart as soon as I tried to fold it over the filling.




  1. These are delicious! I made them for my Polush mother who is now gluten free. She hasn't had any in many years and really enjoyed these saying the filling was very "tasty". She used to make them a lot when I was a child. This is the first time I've made perogies and I discovered that they are very labour intensive but for special ocassions, they're a real treat. Thanks for the great recipe.Just one thing to note: I used 6 large potatoes and could have made another 30-40 perogies if I'd had more pastry. When I make them again, I'll only used 2 large potatoes. I'm sure it'll be plenty.Made for the Aus/NZ recipe swap #24 - Feb 2009.


  2. I would caution everyone to use a GF flour like Cup4Cup, or perhaps whatever GF flour you use that DOES have Xanthan Gum in it, to take out 1/2 cup of the flour and replace it with 1/2 cup of Tapioca Starch. Tapioca starch gives ELASTICITY to dough and would greatly assist in this aspect of making pierogi, or ravioli, etc. The issue with GF flours is that they are missing what gives dough elasticity.

  3. If I could give it a zero, I would. I'm an experienced cook. Dough was unusable, even for a gluten free formulation. Waste of time and ingredients.

  4. Which gluten free flower did you use?

  5. Are you able to freeze these?
