These delicate cottage cheese dumplings are from my childhood, my mother and grandmother cooked them often. The recipe is very simple, quick and easy to make, so they are also called ‘lazy vareniki‘. Cottage cheese can be substituted with ricotta cheese. Halushki, Lazy Vareniki can be served with butter, sour cream, honey, jam or puree of fresh fruit and berries. This is a fun dish to cook with kids, its very simple to do and hard to make a mistake. You can freeze them as well so be sure to make plenty, they won’t go to waste (just don’t cook them before freezing).
