Homemade Gluten Free Pierogi

Traditional recipe for homemade gluten free pierogi

Gluten free pierogi are a delicious indulgence that are well worth the effort. Stuff them with a variety of different flavours, and freeze the extras for a quick, weeknight meal!




  1. Mix all the dough ingredients together. Kneed for 5-10 minutes until you get a nice smooth dough. Cover with a damp towel, and let rest for at least 30 minutes, while you prepare your fillings.
  2. With gluten free pierogi, it’s easiest to make them individually as described above. They don’t need to be pretty, they just need to be sealed to keep the filling in. You can freeze the pierogi at this point, or set them aside for cooking.
  3. To cook pierogi, gently drop a few of them into a pot of boiling water. Avoid crowding them or they will stick together. Boil until they are cooked through and float, usually 5 minutes.
  4. Scoop them out with a slotted spoon and coat them in oil or butter to prevent sticking.
  5. Either keep them warm in the oven or pan fry them with onions.
  6. Serve with homemade sauerkraut and sour cream.
