Happy Vegan Pierogies

Quick and dirty... Yeah, I said it.
(Make in bulk to avoid multiple clean-ups.)

What You'll Need:
2 cups flour
warm water
1/2 cup oil
1/2 large onion
2 medium potatoes
Earth Balance (vegan butter spread)
soy milk
garlic salt
parsley flakes

Mix flour, 1/2 cup warm water, 1/4 cup oil, and some salt in a bowl.
Roll out into 1/8" sheet and cookie cut 3" circles.

Pan-fry onion, sliced, with a little water until caramel-color and soft.
Boil potatoes and mash them with some Earth Balance and a little soy milk.
Mix potatoes and onions and toss in some salt, pepper, garlic salt, and parsley flakes.
Whip it good.
[Make any filling you want, though. Seriously. They can even be made with apples and cinnamon for dessert.]

Add little dollops (I really hate that word) of mixture onto the circles.
Fold the dough over in half and seal with fork ridges.
Boil pierogies, 3 at a time, until they rise in the water.
Pull out quickly and pan fry in olive oil
