What's in a name? Ukrainian varenyky would taste as good as Polish pierogi because they are basically the same thing. Ukrainian pyrohy, however, while still dumplings, are actually made with yeast dough and are baked. (Some chi-chi versions are made with short pastry dough or puff pastry.)

The result is a mouthful of deliciousness. The fillings are limitless as those for their varenyky and pierogi cousins. Try this ground-meat pyrohy filling recipe.

Making pyrohy is too much work, you say? Save time by making one large dumpling known as a pyrih instead of dozens of little ones. It ends up looking a lot like a Polish and Russian kulebiak.
