Cottage cheese and rye flour balls, or cookies?

The author of this recipe says it’s cookies and in her blog they really look like cookies. In my case, they are balls and the texture is between cookies and buns. Therefore, we call them just balls. The first day they have crispy exterior and the next they are all soft. In my family, they are enjoyed in all forms. Just I have to hide some if I want to enjoy them next day. By the way, you can see from the ingredient list that all sweetness comes from just one tablespoon of honey, so in our opinion they are not cookies at all 🙂 But if you will enjoy them with a sweet drink, they will be perfect companions.

I still afraid to use rye flour in sweet baking, but these balls really fit here and encourage me to try other sweets with them.

Fluffy cottage cheese pancakes

Very delicious pancakes. Fluffy, very light. Just melts in your mouth. When I remember their taste I’m suffused with warmth and good memories of the weekend.

Buns with cottage cheese

I bake these buns everytime I have some cottage cheese left and want something sweet but at the same time simple. And the next day I just love to warm them a few seconds in the microwave – then they smell like newly baked. Really good!

Potato and curds Arrows

Potato and cottage cheese Arrows

After lunch I had boiled potato leftover, so I let my fantasy take me away 🙂 These arrows are really greate and cheese is here a must. But you should be careful with the salt, because cheese already has it inside.

Cookies with cottage cheese

Once great grandparents brought from the farmer market home made cottage cheese for there beloved grandchildren. But the cheese wasn’t so delicious as everyone wanted so for a long time it sat quietly in the corner of a fridge and waited. But the day has come when this cheese was used for unsweetened cookies, that tasted something between cookies and baked cottage pancakes. Everyone was happy – children, because they got tasty snack, cottage cheese – because at last he was useful, and parents – that didn’t throw away spend money.

Buckwheat and curd bake

Buckwheat and curd bake

For the first time in my life I ate sweet buckwheat bake ? I don”t use buckwheat preparing food. Mostly we eat them only cooked with a lot of butter, and sometime we add some curd into them. But it”s boring, and this bake was something new. We ate it with strawberry jam and it was really tasty. I made a photo of the last piece that I grabbed from my husband plate ? That means that this recipe is really great. Though in the beginning I was very sceptical.
