250 grams continental flour
1 egg
200 grams cottage cheese
1 cup of milk
30 grams butter
Pinch of salt
4 punnets of strawberries
3 tablespoons of icing sugar

Wash strawberries. Prepare 3 punnets of strawberries by chopping off the leaves and root then cut them into halves.  Mix continental flour, egg, cottage cheese, butter, salt and gradually add milk until you get a dough texture. Use your hands to knead the mixture.

On a clean table, sprinkle some continental flour and roll out the dough mixture. Using the top of a glass, make circles into your dough and pull away the excess dough. Put a strawberry inside and roll into the shape of a ball.

Continue doing so until you have used all of your dough. Add dumplings to boiling water until they float (4-6mins). Take them out as soon as they are floating.

Strawberry sauce
Wash 1 punnet of strawberries. Put them in a blender, add 3 tablespoons of icing sugar, a touch of whip cream if you desire and blend to create the sauce.  Heat up the sauce in the microwave.

Serve 3-6 dumplings per person, pour hot strawberry sauce over the top and add icing sugar on top to finish it off.
