We love perogies, they are a Canadian favourite. There is a challenge with the spelling of the word perogies as it seems it’s dependant upon where you are located as to how a person spells it. Despite the spelling, the classic perogy is usually made with a combination of cheese and potato, although other variations are found and the favourite is dependant upon preference. Even more unique are a country favourite, fruit filled perogies. These Blueberry Perogies with Blueberry Sauce are a delicious change to dessert and it’s not hard to see why.
For those of you who have never made perogies, it’s not hard just a little time consuming but your efforts will be worthwhile. The sauce can be made ahead and stored in the refrigerator for use on waffles, pancakes or other treats.
