• Add in the flour and mix until well incorporated.
• Cover dough with plastic wrap until ready to use.
• Cut off about a gum ball of dough at a time and roll into a flat 2-inch circle sprinkling with flour as needed to keep the dough from sticking to your work surface or the rolling pin.

• Put the cherry and sugar mixture in center of your cut-out dough round.
• Fold the sides together and pinch together to make a tight seal.
• Bring a large pot of salted water to boil.
• As you finish the first batch of pierogi, place them in boiling water.

• Serve right away with sour cream or eat them as is.
