    Wow, this is going to be difficult to post to the Recipezaar database until I actually make some (which I haven't done in years). The recipe is written out by her as follows:

    Cottage Cheese Noodle Buttons
    Take a package of dry-curd cottage cheese (DO NOT use creamed) and add some salt. I never measure--suit your taste. Add a couple of beaten eggs, allspice to taste, chopped green onions, and some bread crumbs.

    2 or 3 cups flour, salt, 3 or 4 eggs, warm water. Mix together and roll out. Cut into squares.

    Put a spoonful of filling on each square and fold corners to the center, pinching to seal well (I'd moisten with a little water to get a really good seal).

    Then boil in salted water and saute with bread crumbs (small diced pieces) in butter.

    How's that for a vague recipe! Gotta love those old German cooks. I will post the recipe properly later on when I have time to make it and rewrite it. In the meantime, you can probably figure it out well enough to make it. You are on your own for the butter/cream sauce.

    Let me know how they turn out when you make them.

    Mmmm..oh I hope that one day you will get this one nailed down so you can post it..I'd love to try it and give you a review. Sounds so good. icon_smile.gif

    Heather, my sister (whose MIL gave me the recipe) and I have set a date to make these when I am on vacation, the last week of May. I will definitely keep track of the details as we make them and post the proper recipe then.

    These are indeed called Case Noodles. My mother still makes them from time to time as did her mother. My family calls them Pocket Books.

    Like someone else said, It's an egg noodle dough filled with cottage cheese, bread cubes & egg. We use salt & pepper, not allspice. I've never had an actual recipe to follow so these are all estimates

    1C cottage cheese
    1/2 loaf bread cut in to small cubes 1/2 inch or less
    1-2 eggs
    salt & pepper to taste

    combine all of the above ingredients in a bowl and set aside

    Make egg dough.
    ! C flour
    1 tsp salt
    1 large egg

    put flour and salt in a bowl and make a little well in the middle of the flour. Crack the egg in a small bowl and scramble well. Add to the flour and mix well. Dough should be soft and slightly tacky but manageable.
    Roll out to 1/8th inch thick and cut in to 4 inch squares.

    Place 1-2 tsp of filling in the middle of the square. Pull all corners together and pinch closed. Pinch all seams closed.

    Drop in to boiling salted water. Stir gently to dislodge from bottom of the pan after a few minutes. When they float, they are done.

    In a separate pan, heat 1 can evaporated milk and a stick of butter until butter is melted.

    Serve pocket books in a bowl with the mill/butter sauce.
