These easy dumplings are a lazy way of making Russian Farmers Cheese Varenyky at home, in just a fraction of the time.

Cheese Dumpling on a plate with sour cream besides them and pomegranate seeds sprinkled on top

A friend of mine shared this recipe after her trip to Ukraine. Since my husband is a huge fan of Varenyky, but rarely do I find time and patience to make it, this recipe was a must.

P.S. This recipe is originally supposed to include farmers cheese, but instead, I chose large curd cottage cheese. The chunks of cheese still remain inside of dumplings and the taste is almost identical to the original Farmers Cheese Varenyky.
