Pierogi with Italian Plum Filling and Spiced Sour Cream

Seasonal fruit, such as plump blueberries or Italian plums, makes the dumplings lighter. We added nutmeg to the sour cream for a hint of spice. Small apricots can also be used.For a step-by-step guide, see our How-To.

    My mother always put a sugar cube inside the Italian plum. Much easier to do.
