Side Dish

Polish White Cheese Dumplings (Kluski Leniwe)

16 ounces farmer cheese (or dry curd cottage cheese)

1 tablespoon butter, optional

2 eggs, separated

1 cup flour

Salt to taste

Mash the cheese with a fork. If using butter, melt it and mix with the egg yolks. Otherwise, mix the yolks with the cheese and flour and add a pinch of salt. Beat the egg whites until light and fluffy and add to the dough.

Knead into a smooth dough and separate into thirds, rolling each into a log about 1/2 inch thick. Flatten the top gently and cut across diagonally with a knife into pieces about 1 by 11/2 inches.

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and slide in the dumplings about 20 at a time, cooking for about 3 minutes, until they rise to the top. Remove with a slotted spoon. Drizzle with melted butter, sprinkle with sugar or enjoy with yogurt or sour cream. Makes 3 servings.
