  1. In a blender, combine cottage cheese, 2 eggs and ground black pepper to taste. Cover and blend until smooth, or beat with an electric mixer until smooth; Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together flour, milk powder, baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt. In a small bowl, beat together 2 eggs, water and oil; combine with flour mixture.
  3. On a floured surface, knead dough about 10 times or until smooth. Divide dough in half and roll out each portion to a 1/8 inch thickness. Using a 4 inch round cutter, cut out rounds of dough.
  4. Place 1 tablespoon of filling in the center of each circle. Moisten the edge and fold over to form a half moon shape; pinch to seal.
  5. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add half of the dumplings and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until tender; remove with a slotted spoon and drain. Repeat with remaining dumplings.
  6. While the dumplings are cooking, prepare the gravy. In a medium saucepan, melt the butter over medium-low heat. Stir in ham, and cook until ham is light brown. Add 3 tablespoons flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper. Stir. Pour in milk all at once, stirring constantly; cook and stir until thick and bubbly. Serve over the dumplings.

After I mixed all the wet ingredients I realized that the dry cottage cheese is actually farmers cheese. Cottage cheese is a no go for this recipie.

This has been a family favorite of ours for years, only we used bacon instead of ham and I've always liked to make them bigger even if noone else did.

This recipe is very similar to my family's recipe. Only, instead of the ham gravy, my family puts sour cream on top of them.

Recipe is different and tasty, but it is time consuming to make. I am not sure I would make it again for that reason.

Finally! This is how my grandma made them (we called them kaysnip). We served them with sour cream and breadcrumbs.

The recipe is very good and I tried it only on the recommendation of a good friend.
