  • 1/4 c Red-vine vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tb Sugar
  • 1 ts Caraway seeds, crushed
  • 1/4 Small red cabbage, finely
  • -shredded
  • Salt & freshly ground pepper


1 lg Egg
1/2 c Milk
1 1/2 tb Sour cream
1/2 c Water
2 1/4 c All-purpose flour, or more
-as needed

1 1/2 lb Parsnips, peeled
2 Shallots, peeled
1 ts Unsalted butter
Freshly grated nutmeg
Salt & freshly ground pepper
2 ts Freshly grated or prepared
4 oz Farmer cheese or goat cheese

2 ts Unsalted butter
2 Apples, peeled if desired,
-cored, and thinly sliced
3 ts Sugar

1. To make red-cabbage slaw, whisk together vinegar, sugar, and caraway
seeds in a medium bowl. Toss in cabbage. Season with salt and pepper. Let
marinate for at least i hour, or up to overnight.

2. To make pierogi dough, whisk together egg, milk, sour cream, and water.
Stir in flour a little at a time until dough comes together. Turn out onto
a lightly floured board and knead until smooth and elastic, up to 10
minutes. Incorporate more flour if dough is too sticky. Cover dough with
plastic wrap and allow to rest for 1 hour.

3. To make filling, place parsnips in a medium saucepan and cover with
cold, salted water. Bring to a boil and simmer until tender, 20 to 25
minutes. Drain and put through a food mill to puree.

4. In a small saute pan, cook shallots in butter until soft, 1 to 2
minutes. Stir into puree and add nutmeg, salt, and pepper to taste. Remove
from heat and let cool slightly then mix in horseradish and cheese.

5. On a lightly floured board, roll out dough to 1/8 inch. Cut out circles
using a 3/4-inch-round cutter. Set circles aside on a floured tray. Place a
round T of filling on each circle. Lightly wet edges, fold over, and seal
by pinching.

6. To make sauteed apples, heat a medium saute pan over medium-high heat.
Melt butter, add apple slices, and toss to coat. Add sugar and toss again
to coat evenly. Cook until brown, about 5 minutes.

7. When ready to serve, bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Add
pierogies and boil for 5 minutes after they float to the surface; drain.
Pierogies can be eaten right away or browned in a small amount of butter.
Serve with red-cabbage slaw and sauteed apples.
