Vintage recipe from St. Mary's Polish Church, McKeesport, PA. The name for this thick and delicious noodle stems from the fact you mix the cheese right into the dough. You don't even have to stuff the dumplings! It is an easy dish and very tasty. Meatless, it was a Lenten favorite years ago. We need to save these old-time recipes before they are gone forever! NOTE: You can substitute regular cottage cheese rinsed and drained VERY WELL. The farmer cheese called for is very similar in texture to cottage cheese; it is not the solid formed sliceable cheese you sometimes see... And the buttered breadcrumbs are key! It IS a Polish recipe, you know.
