Polish Prune Pierogi

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

This pierogi filling is made with prunes, which are nothing more than dried plums. Once the dumplings are boiled, they plump up and it's like eating a fresh plum.

Alternatively, the pierogi dough can be filled with powidla śliwkowe - plum butter, which is similar to prune butter.
