Simple Quark Cookies.

I do not know about you, but I have always problem. When I cook for dinner soup, what to serve beside.

These cookies are simple to bake and pay attention: there no spices and seasonings in this dough. So, you can bake and serve them as savoury or sweet, as you like.

      1. Ok. I drained Greek yogurt until it was quite thick. The dough was very soft and sticky. Is the flour measurement correct at 200ml? It seemed as though it could have used more flour. I will take photos and post on my blog when done. Using poppy seed filling for the sweet, and garlic butter for savory. It certainly smells good in the kitchen!


      2. Estonian quark is quite dry. Using yoghurt it is very possible you need more flour
        And as you know , amount of flour is depending on moisture, day, climate….

      3. I read recently that USA and European butter are different. Estonian butter is 82% milk fat? It also influences (if butters are different)


  1. This looks very good but I’m not much of a cook Maybe you will inspire me! I came to tell you I appreciate your visits to my blog. You left a like on Just Give Me Jesus today. I like interactive bloggers who let me know there I visited. Thanks..

  2. Yes, I have that problem too, what to serve with soup for dinner. These look like an excellent solution. I will have to try them! And I’d better follow your recipe for quark, too, since I’ve never seen it in stores here (at first I thought there would be a physics joke or something, having never heard of quark as anything other than an anatomic particle)


  3. What an unusual recipe! Great idea! And I really love caraway addition! Thanks for sharing x ps. I can’t get quark where I am right now, can I replace it with cream cheese or cottage cheese maybe? If so in what proportions?


    1. I believe that cream cheese is good subsitude. But estonian quark is quite dry. Probably you need more flour to absorbe moisture. Let me know how did succseed 🙂
