These cookies are inspired by the traditional Ukrainian pastry, called Sochniki. They were common, back in the old days. They were usually very huge in size, filled with farmers cheese filling.

This cookie dough is crispy, while the inside is creamy; it makes a great combination.

This recipe makes about 80 large cookies; if you don’t plan on sharing, you might want to cut the recipe. I didn’t mind making a ton of them. Took some to a friend’s house and the rest to camp, they will be gone before you know it.

You can find the farmers cheese in most European markets or make your own homemade farmers cheese in under 10 minutes.
