Polish Lazy Dumplings Cover




2 cups dry cottage cheese (farmers cheese)
1 tbsp butter
3 eggs
½ tbsp salt
1 tbsp sugar
2-2.5 cup all-purpose flour


Press cheese with a spoon to remove the lumps.  Add butter, eggs, salt, sugar, and flour.  Beat or mix with a spoon until light.

Take half of the dough and roll it into a log.  Then slice into leniwe, any size you like.

Boil in salted water until the leniwe rise to the top, about 5 minutes.

Like traditional pierogi, leniwe rise to the top of the boiling water when ready.

When you are ready to eat them, fry until golden in butter and sprinkle with sugar.
