We never did pierogies (spelling?), but my mom made halupse all the time. And I grew up in Seattle, surrounded by Scandinavians. :-) So my mom brought that recipe from NoDak.

I always was told that pierogies were Polish in origin by some Polish relatives.

My family recipes were kind of non-standard Black Sea German because the family lived in the Galician province of Austria (part of Poland before 1772) for 70 years which kind of warped our eating habits. :) Its interesting to see perogies being ascribed to Polish influences. Or maybe it was the fact that we live cheek and jowl with all sorts of Ukrainians in Winnipeg which is like the perogie capital of Canada.

I have been to Alsace and SW Germany, right down in the "Drei-Länder-Eck" (Switzerland, Germany, France) and have seen things in historical museums that look like what our family serves. Knoepfla still exists in Germany, but my guess is the others died out. I haven't been to the Ukraine, so I can't say what the conenction there might be, but my hunch is we are eating from recipes that are simply hundreds of years old and have died out in the rest of the country.

I make Strudel for my German friends here in Berlin sometimes and they LOVE it. They have never had anything like it before... even the Swabians!

As for Kuga "Kuchen", I have seen some really custardy looking ones on occasion, but not done by the big chain bakeries.
