To say that vareniki with cottage cheese is my favorite dish, it would be a lie. This is not so. As a man, I like meat and fish. But ,  I have in the menu fermented dishes in General, dishes from cottage cheese in particular at least twice a week. And traditional Russian dish vareniki (dumplings) with cottage cheese is one option when you need to quickly and satisfying to eat something. So frozen, they're always in my fridge.



But compared to those that are sold in grocery stores and supermarkets and those that I cooked myself  is like the sky and the earth. Though they use the same cheese, the same flour, the same egg and sugar, not  mention the water and salt, in every large and small manufacturers. So what is so unique I put in them? I don't know, but that is not important. So today, once again, We'll prepare traditional Russian dish vareniki in your kitchen, you just repeate step-by-step recipe, and will be very pleasantly surprised with the result.

So the first stage, the dough. Actually, it's very simple, and it is no different from what I cook for different dumplings or ravioli. Take three cups of flour.
