Easy Farmers Cheese Substitution Recipe

I don't like making my own farmers cheese, and to purchase farmers cheese can be very costly. But there's a concept that will allow you make it very easy and inexpensive, and it works amazing.

If you buy small curds cottage cheese, it will almost have the same texture as the farmers cheese. Otherwise, you can grind it with kitchen aid grinder.

I have used this technique for many recipes, including Vareniki Recipe, The BEST Crepes! , Farmer's Cheese Doughnuts.

Instructions 

Place strainer over a bowl; put coffee liner inside the strainer. Place cheese on top of the liner. Cover with plastic wrap and let it sit for at least 7 hours; often I do this overnight. Liquids from the cottage cheese will completely separate and you will get a thick texture.
