NewlyNested: Similiarly Sirniki


a blogumn by Debra Goykhman

04_-_debbie_cooksMarriage is more than the merging of two people, but also the merging all the baggage that comes with them — including food baggage.

My husband and I rarely like the same foods, which has been the biggest adjustment in our marriage.  One thing that we do like is Russian Sirniki. My husband was shocked to find out that I actually knew how to make the delicious little cheese pancakes (he’s Russian and this was his favorite childhood breakfast).  In fact, years before I met him I had come up with my own version of Sirniki after I had it at a friend’s house.

This recipe (after the jump)  is not traditional, but I think it’s delicious.  Feel free to use ricotta cheese instead of farmers cheese, but it will have a different taste.


What you’ll need:
1 lb Farmer’s Cheese
2 eggs
¼ cup flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
Frying pan
Non-stick cooking spray, oil or butter

How to do it:
Combine all ingredients and mix together until blended.  Set frying pan to medium and grease.  Put small spoonfuls of batter in pan and let cook until golden brown (about 7-10 minutes) flip and do the same on other side (about 5 minutes).  Serve warm with sour cream and fruit preserves.
