Cheese Dumplings

2 1/2 c Cottage cheese; drained
3 tb Butter
4 Egg yolks
5 Egg whites
1 1/4 c Flour
2 tb Bread crumbs
3 tb Butter

Strain cheese through sieve.

Cream butter, add egg yolks, one at a time, salt, add cheese, cream.

Beat egg whites, fold into mixture, sprinkle with flour and mix dough lightly.

Place dough on floured board, form into a rather thick roll, flatten with knife, score, cut into small pierogi (pierogi expand during cooking).

Drop pierogi in portions into boiling salted water, cook, remove with draining spoon onto round platter, dot with browned butter and bread crumbs (polonaise topping) and serve immediately to avoid their becoming flat.
