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.

Corn bake with curd

Corn bake with curd

There is no secret – we like groats with curd :). Long time ago I tried this recipe, so this time I made it again. It was very tasty for all of us. We ate with sour cream. Only next time I will try to make porridge not so stiff :). I need more practice cooking porridge because I never get the same consistence :).

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!

Rye bread sticks with flaxseeds

Healthy snack that all my family enjoy. I baked them twice. First time whole flaxseeds I added on top of breadsticks but they easily dropped of, so next time I put them inside the breadsticks and we like it that way.

Cottage cheese bake with vanilla pudding

We just love cottage cheese. But in the long time we were tired of the same cottage cheese bake. So when I found this recipe I knew I have to bake it – I have pudding mix packet bought long time ago. It is really a good way to use it. My kids loved it. And I prepared half of the recipe, but soon I had to repeat it 🙂
