These popular Russian Soft Farmer’s Cheese Cookies are tender and flaky. The dough is made with cold butter and farmer’s cheese (ricotta or cottage cheese can also be used), which results in a texture that resembles puff pastry – crisp and golden on the outside with a multitude of thin layers inside.
Storing the Cookies
Store the cookie dough in the refrigerator for 2-3 days, or in the freezer up to 3 months.
Store the baked cookies at room temperature for 2-3 days in a closed box or container, or freeze up to 3 months in a freezer ziplock bag or an airtight container.
