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.

Cottage cheese and corn flour pancakes

Last year for Christmas I bought the book Wheat belly, and I liked it so much that in January I didn’t give my family any wheat. At first it as very strange, unusual, but then we got used to it very quickly. But what I liked most – this gave me a kick to look for something new. That’s how I found these pancakes and this year we made them not once or twice. Sometimes I bake them as usual pancakes, sometimes in waffle iron. Both ways we like them. Every time these pancakes comes out very fluffy and light. And they spread in a pan a lot, so make space for them. And if you like to eat pancakes without any add-ons, I suggest to add a little bit more sugar or pour over them some tasty syrup.

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.

Buckwheat and cottage cheese pancakes

I had a lot of cooked boiled buckwheats after my daughter dinner, so I decided to try something new. And I was very glad when my hubby said that it tasted very good!

Fried hand pies with cottage cheese filling

Sometimes my body doesn’t like combination flour+meat, but in those moments we can substitute meat with cottage cheese and make delicious hand pies. My all family enjoyed them and 12 was enough only for three people, but not four 🙂 So next time I’ll have to prepare double portion that everyone cold be happy. 🙂

Layered curd and bread dessert

One more delicious thing from ordinary products. It’s not very sweet but that’s what we need after holidays 🙂 Also it’s very good for using up stale bread. To tell the truth neither I or my husband expected that it will be so delicious. Kids liked it too. When we tasted this dessert at the same day, the bread crumbs were very crunchy, the next day – they became soft, but both days it was real pleasure to eat it.
