Today we do a messy live cooking show! Step by step we guide you through making delicious Polish Pierogi (stuffed dumplings). For the pastry you'll need 5 cups of general flour, 1 teaspoon salt, 3 eggs and 1 cup of water.

Yum! But you can use cheese and potato or anything. Remember to ask for adult supervision Scouts! You'll love Pierogi.
