Recipe Ingredients for Sirovi Struklji (Cottage Cheese Dumplings)

1 1/2 cups flour
1 tablespoon butter
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg, room temperature
6 tablespoons water
1 pound dry cottage cheese
1 cup sour cream
3 egg yolks
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 egg whites, beaten

Recipe Directions for Sirovi Struklji (Cottage Cheese Dumplings)

  1. Measure flour into mixing bowl. Cut in butter. Add salt, egg, and water. With bowl slightly tipped, begin mixing egg and water with a fork. Gradually mix in flour until all is absorbed. Place on a floured board and knead by hand, until the dough is smooth, about 20 minutes. Use your judgement if more flour is needed (dough should not be sticky). Roll out to about 6 inches; spread with warm melted butter and let stand (covered with a bowl) for hour or more.

  2. Mix together the cottage cheese, sour cream, unbeaten egg yolks, and salt. Mix well. Fold in stiffly beaten egg whites; set aside. Flour large cloth covering table (about 36 x 40 inches). Pick up dough and flip a few times in the hands. Place on floured cloth and proceed to pull the dough the entire width and length of the table. Cut off thickened edge around dough. Spread filling on pulled dough and roll up into tight roll jelly-roll fashion. Wet a linen towel (about 30 inches long). Wrap the roll in the towel, tie one end with string, then wind the string around the roll and fasten it at the other end. Place in boiling salted water and simmer for 30 minutes. When cooked, drain, unwrap roll and cut into about 2-inch slices. Top with crumbs browned in butter.
