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.

Rice bake with curd

Lately my family doesn”t want any bakes. But this recipe was the only one that I liked and wanted to prepare for the Rice week. I said that I”m gonna make it you like it or not 🙂 And only when I saw how my family was eating this bake I remembered that rice and curd are the most favourite ingredients so this bake had to be a hit from the beginning. And one more point for this bake – it”s just slightly sweet. That”s why I heard compliment from my hubby. He said that this bake is probably the best that he ever ate 🙂 So you look at the last piece of bake 🙂 and it disappeared very quickly after I did some shots.

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.

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.
