    Thank you for this jumbo shell idea. I’ve never made pirogie for the simple fact that I was chicken! You bet I’ll be trying these. And just try to find pirogue here in Denver — seems non existent except for a small pizza place run by a man who moved here from Cleveland. 🙂 Welcome to #SS,

      The shell helps take a lot of the work out making homemade pierogies 🙂 A friend made them last night and told me instead baking he pan fried them and worked very well too 🙂
