Sochniki is a traditional Ukrainian delicacy. This Ukrainians' favorite desert is a small cottage cheese patty from sweet short pastry. The cottage cheese can be not only a stuffing, though, but a component of the dough for sochniki.
Some stuff sochniki with different berries and fruits: cherry, strawberry, blueberry and other.
They are served as a desert to tea.
