Gluten Free Pierogies

Homemade gluten free pierogies - simple and delicious

Gluten free pierogies are a delicious indulgence that is well worth the effort. Stuff them with a variety of different flavours, and freeze the extras for a quick, mid-week 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. (See notes below for a link to recipes for pierogi fillings.)
  2. With gluten free pierogies, 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 pierogies at this point, or set them aside for cooking.
  3. To cook pierogies, 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.
