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.

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. 🙂

Cottage cheese and pasta bake

I had a lot of boiled pasta and curds. So decided to try this bake and it was very good. My little daugther ate it with jam two days in a row.

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.

Wild strawberries with sour milk

Quick and easy drink or dessert. I made it for kids and they liked it a lot. It’s a pity that these berries were the last in our garden.

Cottage cheese and potatoes dumplings

At first I just wanted to make photo and upload it to Mano receptai.lt. But when my family tasted them, I understood that they are really good and they deserve to be posted here. I have tried to boil cottage cheese and potato dumplings without the recipe, bet they never tasted as good as these. I think the secret is good cottage cheese and potato proportions. So I really recommend to try this a little bit simplified version of dumplings.
