DIRECTIONS

Mix together cottage cheese, butter and eggs. Add cream of wheat, flour and salt. Take spoonfuls and roll them into balls, about the size of a small mandarin. You may want to dust your hands with flour so they don't stick.

Place them on a floured board. (If it is too dry add a bit of whipping cream. If too soft, add more flour).

In a large pot, bring 3 quarts of water to a boil. Add a pinch of salt.

Drop balls into the water and boil them until they all start floating on the top, ( about 10-12 minutes).

Meanwhile, melt butter in a skillet.

Add bread crumbs and stirring continually, (careful it can burn)  on medium low heat, until becomes golden brown.

Remove dumplings with a slotted spoon and roll each into the bread crumbs.

Remove to a serving dish.

Serve them sprinkled with icing sugar and a dash (or more) of cinnamon.

Makes:24

Enjoy!
