Place a spoonful of mashed potatoes in the middle of each circle, fold over and press the edges together to seal.

tip: to prevent mashed potatoes from drying out, add additional cream and butter when reusing.

Add the butter to a large skillet and heat over medium.

Once the butter is melted, add the onion and sauté 2-3 minutes, sprinkle with brown sugar and sauté for an additional 6-8 minutes.

Add the pierogies to the skillet with the caramelized onions in batches, 5-6 at a time and brown lightly on each side for 3-4 minutes.

Serve the pierogies with the caramelized onions.
