Comfort month continues.
I intended to bake Syrniki, a Ukranian cheese pancake.
And I could not find the farmer’s cheese that is integral to the recipe.
And this week has me on the ropes.
I’ve only slept 2 hours at a time, due to cases.
Two hours before and 2 hours during the day.
I found a recipe to make farmer’s cheese but even that can’t hold my attention.
Cue double-cream cheese from Petaluma, CA, that my brothers-in-law sent us for Christmas.
I shredded the cheese that was part of their amazing gift.
And used it to make Syrniki inspired baked cheese cookies.
I had a cookie straight from the oven.
It was a little… lacking.
Inspiration struck in my pantry.
I brought toppings for the little cheese cookies.
A sour cherry jam, a triple pepper jam, and raspberry jam.
I had a triple pepper jam topped cookie as I was dropping them off.
I wanted to do my little part, because my husband won’t let me go volunteer in Ukraine.
Making these gave me comfort during a hideous week.
Comfort cookie #2 of the month.
Ukranian Syniki inspired cheese cookies.
A humble little cookie.
Made of cheese, egg, and a little flour.
Good wishes and best thoughts to those fighting in Ukraine.
There are no words.
