2 eggs
½ cup water +/-
2 cups of flour
1/2 t salt

~16 Ripe plums
~1 cup sugar
~1 tsp. cinnamon

Place into dough circle.  Lift dough and cover plum, using water to seal the dough edges.  Boil dough pierogi in hot water 3-5 minutes.  Remove and use butter or oil to dredge in, otherwise they will stick together.
Warm in fry pan with oil or butter and brown to taste.  Serve as is or with whipped cream.  Freeze excess individually in zip-lock bags.
