Freezing Instructions:
  1. Shorten the boiling time for pierogi that you intend to freeze by two minutes .
  2. Remove the pierogi to a drying rack or baking sheet. Allow to dry to the touch. 
  3. Then, put them on a plastic cutting board or a parchment covered baking sheet.  Place them side-by-side, not overlapping.
  4. Put the baking sheet in your freezer for 15 to 20 minutes to to allow their surface to get hard. 
  5. Once the pierogi surfaces are hard, pack them in a container or plastic bag.  Remove as much air as possible so they don’t dry out.
  6. Back into the freezer to freeze completely.
  7. Don’t forget to date them and label with what filling is inside.
