Sweet Cheese Fritters
(Syrniki)
What You Need:
  • 4 cups large-curd pot cheese or cottage cheese (2 pints)
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • ╝ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 8 tablespoons (╝-pound stick) melted butter
  • 1 cup sour cream

  • How To Cook:
    1. Drain the cheese of all its moisture by setting it in a colander, covering it with a kitchen towel, and weighting it with a heavy casserole.

    2. Let the cheese drain undisturbed for 2 or 3 hours, then with the back of a spoon, rub it through a fine sieve set over a bowl. Beat in the egg yolks, one at a time, and gradually beat in the flour, salt and sugar. Shape the mixture into 4 equal balls.

    3. One at a time, place the cheese balls on a lightly floured surface and with your hands, form them into 3- or 4-inch-long sausage-shaped cylinders. Wrap each cylinder separately in wax paper and chill for at least 30 minutes.

    4. With a heavy knife, cut each cylinder into l-inch-wide rounds. Melt 4 tablespoons of the butter in a heavy 10- to 12-inch skillet. Add 6 to 8 rounds to the skillet, and fry over moderate heat for 3 to 5 minutes on each side, or until golden brown.

    5. Transfer the syrniki to a heated platter and cover them loosely with foil to keep them warm. Fry the remaining rounds similarly, adding butter to the pan as needed. Serve hot, with a bowl of sour cream.

    To Serve: 4 to 6
