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.

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.

Cottage cheese bake with couscous

We like cottage cheese bake, so I have already tried a lot of versions like simple cottage cheese bake, cottage cheese and pasta bake, cottage cheese and vanilla pudding bake and cottage cheese and rice bake. This time I tried with couscous. Everyone tastes a little bit different but we like them all. And it’s good to know that everytime I can choose by my refrigerator content.

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.
