Sochniki is a traditional Ukrainian delicacy. This Ukrainians' favorite desert is a small cottage cheese scone from sweet short pastry. This dough is soft, while the inside is creamy; it makes a great combination. I love these cheese scones!
Ingredients for the dough :
1/4 cup OR 75g sugar
5-6 tbsp OR 50 gr butter
1/2 cup OR 100 gr sour cream
0.5 tsp baking powder
2 1/2 cups OR 300 gr flour
1 egg yolk with water for coating

1 1/2 cups OR 200 gr dry cottage cheese - tvorog / farmers cheese or curd

Step 3 : Add your flour and baking powder. Form the dough and set aside.

Step 5 : Mix all your filling ingredients together until all combined and smooth.
