German Cottage Cheese Cakes

These are delicious.


  • 2 cups cottage cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs, separated
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • Water


  1. Combine cottage cheese, egg yolks and salt. Add egg whites to flour. Add enough water to moisten flour, as for pastry.
  2. Roll dough and cut in 6-inch circles. Put 2 tablespoons of cheese mixture on half of the circle. Fold over other side and fasten edges securely. Drop half-moons in a large pan of boiling water. When done, these will float on top of the water.
  3. Remove from water and pour brown butter over top.

Makes 6 to 8 cakes.
