Polish Grandmother's 'Homemade Pierogi' Recipe Makes Us Appreciate Tradition

Do you have fond memories of spending time with your family? We sure hope so. You probably have many memories if you were fortunate to have your grandparents and elders in your life as a kid. Thinking back to a time when your life was simple can be very comforting. Being an adult is difficult at times. We all need those happier childhood days to reminisce about when adulting gets you down. 

In a TikTok video, content creator @juliamaj30 shared a poignant moment with her grandmother. We appreciate the time they spent together making homemade pierogi. This is a recipe that should be passed down for generations to come.

We didn’t realize it took two days to make homemade pierogi. We have so much respect and admiration for people that make them regularly. Let’s see how the TikTok community reacted to this multi-generational duo. User @Aggie Bielinski said, “It’s so interesting how it’s different. My babcia taught me to roll it out into a sheet and cut it with a circular glass. We are from the eastern side of Poland.” @Liv wrote, “I love this! I'm also Polish & I tried making pierogi from scratch with my mom & it was so hard! You and your grandma make them perfectly.” @user8035841114157 replied, “You forgot the kielbasa on the side.”

As we read through the comments, we saw many people make their pierogies differently. But it shouldn’t be surprising. We like that they offered suggestions on how to make them. Someone’s method may be easier than your current way of making them. Choose whatever works for you. If you enjoyed the video, visit @juliamaj30’s TikTok for more family-friendly content.
