Let's Make It
Combine flour and salt in large bowl. Cube half the cream cheese. Add to flour mixture; cut with pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add egg and warm water; mix until mixture forms ball. Place on lightly floured surface. Knead 5 min. or until dough is smooth and elastic.
Mix remaining cream cheese with potatoes, onions and pepper until blended.
Roll out dough on lightly floured surface to 1/8-inch thickness; cut into 48 (3-1/2-inch) rounds, rerolling trimmings as necessary. Spoon 1 Tbsp. potato mixture onto center of each round. Lightly brush water around edge of each dough round; fold in half to enclose filling. Seal edges with fork.
Bring large saucepan of water to boil. Add pierogi, 12 at a time; cook 3 to 4 min. or until they float to the surface. Remove pierogi from water with slotted spoon; drain.
Melt 1 Tbsp. butter in large skillet in medium heat. Add 1/4 of the shallots and 12 pierogi; cook and stir 4 min. or until pierogi are golden brown. Repeat, in batches, with remaining butter, shallots and pierogi.
Mix sour cream and chives until blended. Serve with the pierogi.
