Sirniki can be eaten for supper or for breakfast.They are often served with sour cream, honey, or jam.

– 2 lb. farmer cheese or ricotta cheese.
– 1 egg.
– ½ c. sugar, plus extra for sprinkling.
– ½ tsp. salt.
– 1 to 1½ c. all-purpose flour.
– sunflower oil for fryin.


Step 1:In a large bowl, mash cheese with a fork. Add egg and mix well. Stir in sugar and salt.
Step 2:Add flour, a little at a time, until dough is firm enough to knead by hand. Continue adding flour and kneading until dough can be shaped easily with hands.
Step 3:Dust hands with flour and scoop up a piece of dough about the size of a medium apple. Roll into a ball between palms and press to form a pancake about 1 inch thick. Make a batch of 3 or 4 before frying.
Step 4:Pour a thin layer of oil into a large frying pan and heat over medium heat for 1 minute. Carefully place pancakes in pan with a spatula and fry for 3 to 4 minutes, or until bottoms are golden brown. Turn over and fry until second side turns golden brown. Remove and place on paper towels.
Step 5:Continue making and frying sirniki, adding more oil to pan when necessary, until dough is used up. Sprinkle with sugar and serve.

Note : *For a special summertime treat, serve sirniki with fresh strawberries or raspberries.
