Cheese dumplings

   You know those moments when you`re crawling for something sweet, but not too sweet? And you`re too lazy to bake an actual cake? Try these cheese dumpings. I made them last sunday. It was a rainy day, so I wasnt` in the mood to prepare anything that would take me a looong time. But I still had to make something because I realy had a sweet tooth.

    Enought with the chit-chat. Here is what you need:
- 250 gr fresh cheese
- 1 big egg, or 2 small ones
- 3 spoons semolina flour
- a pinch of salt
- 1 spoon flour
- 2 spoons butter

How to make the dip in the dumplings
    Mingle well the cheese with the egg/eggs, semolina flour, salt and flour. From the resulted composition, form the dumplings. You have to make them small and round, slightly flattened and with a dip in the middle (there you`ll put the stuffing). You can make the dip with your finger, as in the picture.  

    Now, put some watter with salt to boil (aprox. 3l). Put the dumplings in the boiling water, and let them there until they rise to the surface. Then, let them boil for another 8-10 minutes at low heat. Take them out when they`re done and let the cool on absorbent paper.
   Heat the butter in a pan, and fry a little the cheese dumplings until they get a nice golden color. An they`re done.

 Now, about the stuffings. You can use anything you want, or anything that comes to your mind: jam, some cream, pudding, finetti or even put some fruits on top. Enjoy :)
