    Jezski's Note:

    Similar to #263677 Pierogi Leniwe (Polish Cheese Dumplings) but maybe a little easier and less time-consuming. Simple to make and very good. Great for Lenten meals. From a Slovenian Cookbook in my collection.

      These were easy and fast to put together. Before chilling...I rolled the dough in plastic wrap to form a tube. Then cut and cooked them. I knew that they would be bland, but made as directed. I think next time I will add some green onion (like I do when I make cottage cheese piroges. And maybe make a sour cream gravy to top it off. I know that is probably not Slovenian, but I think it would be good. I will definately be making this again. Thank you for sharing this recipe. I made this for New Kids on the Block tag game.
