Very good recipe. I modified it a bit. I flavored the cottage cheese with garlic powder, salt, pepper, and italian seasoning. Instead of simmering in milk, I made a white sauce from butter, flour, milk, curry powder, saffron, salt and pepper...Yum! I found that simmering the dumplings in the sauce for 20 minutes more than sufficient.


Jodi! This is a KILLER recipe! Absolutely delicious and easy to do! I plan to make these very often, and during berry season, I will add a little sugar to the cheese and some blueberries! Yowza! Thanks for a great recipe!


I'm sure this could turn out well, but I made this when I was first beginning to cook. I had big problems keeping the stuff inside. It tasted pretty good, but it was also really messy.
