Sweet pierogi for dessert are common. They're usually served with melted butter and a dusting of granulated or confectioners' sugar.

This recipe for plum filling can be made with damson or small Italian prune plums. Alternatively, the pierogi dough can be filled with powidla sliwkowe - plum butter - for a slightly different taste.
