    evelyn/athens's Note:

    This was definitely the best dessert offering my friends and I had at the Kafe Sacher in Wien. Forget Sacher Torte (imo way too dry), try these instead. I have not provided a fruit compote - use one of your liking (at the Kafe Sacher they were served with an apricot sauce). This particular recipe was found at the GlobalGourmet and adjusted to include the toasted breadcrumbs. Note: In Austria, topfen (quark) would be used instead of cottage cheese. If you have it, use it. :-)

      I definitely wouldn't have tagged this recipe unless I had access to quark, 'cause I wanted to make this recipe as authentic as possible ~ My ingredient-hunting friend came through with flying colors & I was most impressed! These little tasties are so easy to prepare & the finished dessert was wonderful! Shared with neighbors & served with some homemade strawberry sauce ~ OUTSTANDING! Thanks for sharing the recipe!
