Please help with Russian recipe - "Lazy" vareniki

jaykat | Nov 5, 2007 03:30 PM

I'm looking for a Russian recipe - not sure how well known it is. It is called "lazy" vareniki, which is basically a vareniki without the pastry on the outside. I think it consists of: farmer cheese, sugar, flour and eggs, but not sure about the quantities. The method is similar to making gnocchi: you mix up the ingredients, roll into a log, cut into small pieces and then put into boiling water.

My grandmother used to make these and they were great, but now she has had a stroke and her memory is not so good. I wish I would have asked her earlier....

Any help appreciated!
