Cottage Cheese Pie. Kodujuustupirukas

cottage cheese pie (1)Cottage Cheese Pie is a great dish for breakfast or a quick dinner.
A wonderful recipe you can serve as a sweet or savoury dish.

Did you know?  Interesting fact: In Estonia, cottage cheese began to be produced in order to meet the cheese production plan set by Moscow to the USSR. The National Planning Committee of the USSR almost doubled the cheese production of the Estonian SSR for the five-year plan, So, this is the reason why Estonia began to produce cottage cheese which was reported as cheese in the reports 🙂

Zucchini and Cheese Pie. SuvikĂ”rvitsa ja juustupirukas

juustusuvik6rvitsa (2)A light, vegetable dish recipe perfect for a late summer dinner.
I have to say that I just love cheese. And specially baked cheese. So I love for example Georgian cuisine  where a lot of cheese pies and dishes.
To get lighter version is reasonable to add some vegetables. Like in this recipe. Zucchini does not have very special taste. It gives moisture, juiciness, structure, volume and make this pie lighter.

Yeast Free Hand Pies with Cowberry and Cheese filling. PĂ€rmivabad pohla- juustupirukad

This recipe is suitable for all people who do not like or have not time or skills to use and prepare yeast dough.

Very easy to prepare.

I used sweet filling and combined cowberries, nuts and cheese. I love savoury-sweet and sour combination. Nuts give texture and crustiness.
You are free to change it, of course. I would suggest for example carrot filling. Find the recipe from my blog.pohlajuustupirukas (9)

The coldest months in Estonia are January and February, where temperatures can drop down to -35C. The coldest temperature ever measured in Estonia is -43.5C, recorded in eastern Estonia on 17 January 1940.
