Strawberry and cheese Dumplings (Knedle serowo-truskawkowe)

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail




200g farmers cheese
200g (2 cups) unbleached all purpose flour
1 egg yolk
1/2 cup milk (at room temperature)
fresh strawberries
pinch of salt
1 tsp olive oil


Rinse fruits with water.

Cut strawberries into little pieces. Use fresh strawberries of good quality.

Mix fast all ingredients in a large bowl with a spoon and knead lightly in the bowl. Rest dough for one-half hour covered with a kitchen towel. When it is done, knead the dough a few times on a floured surface and roll out to 1/8-inch thickness. Cut into squares.

Lay portions of strawberries on dough squares and add quarter to half a teaspoonful of sugar.Thanks to that the sugar will manage to dissolve in the juice which will sail out of fruits.

Glue knedle very carefully. It is important, since knedle with fruit has a greater tendency of opening during cooking, than knedle with any other filling.

Put water with the addition of salt and the spoonful of oil on the cooker. Thanks to oil our knedle won't get glued to each other. After few minutes, when water starts boiling we throw knedle in, one after another.

Stir every couple of minutes so that they don't stick to the pan. When the dumplings will flow to the surface we still cook 2-3 minutes. Take one knedel out and check, whether the dough is soft. If not - continue cooking for a while.

Drain knedle. They are ready. Serve them warm with addition of sour cream (optional) and enjoy (:

  • AP  - Knedle or Pierogi
    Susan, good question haha. You are right. It is pointless to look for the good answer online, because you will find out that both names are common regardless what the filling is. Personally I refer to the ones with fruit as "knedle" and the ones with other filling as pierogi. This is how I remember calling them while living in Poland. Even now, when you go to old fashion polish diner (bar mleczny) you will see that "knedle" are with fruit and pierogi with other stuff (: There is bunch of "kluski" as well, but that is another story. :)
  • Susan  - What is the difference.....
    What is the difference between a pierogi and a knedle? My grandmother/mother/and myself make a pierogi with fruit, cinnamon sugar and brown butter, but a knedle seems to be 'almost' the same. Is it just a different name?
