Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
I remember sitting down and making these with my father ( Randy Hiebert ) when I was a kid. We would make the filling and then the dough, turn the kitchen table into a little Pierogi factory line, one of us cutting the circles, another filling them and sealing the edges. We would put them on cookie sheets with a towel over them and freeze them in order to bag them for later. Sometimes this was done in the freezer, usually ( being that we lived in Yellowknife, N.W.T ) we would just put them outside on the back or front porch till frozen.....right next to the pail of Ice cream.
