Here is a quick dessert idea that will surely please everyone! If you’ve never had the dessert perogies before, you are missing out on something amazing! I love blueberries. I use to go blueberry picking with my brother as a kid during summer vacation. Of course my brother was picking them to sell to a local store and as much I was trying to earn some money during the summer, I was eating more of them than I was putting in the basket.

I used frozen perogies for this recipe, so since they are frozen (fresh and uncooked) you need to cook them in boiling water before you can fry them. Believe me I tried to fry them directly out of the freezer and the result was an exploding perogie in a pool of hot oil! Not something you really want to experience!

Start by cooking them in boiling water for 5 minutes and set aside on a plate. Prepare your dipping station with a bowl with a beaten egg and another with flour. Dip each perogie in the egg and then roll in the flour.

In a large skillet, heat up enough oil for frying (about 2 inches deep). Fry the perogies a few minutes on each side until golden. Reserve on paper towels to absorb the excess oil. Plate the perogies and dust them with confection sugar and grated cinnamon. Serve with a chocolate dipping sauce and garnish with fresh mint.
