7. Put the protein in a bowl, add salt to it, mix the mass with a whisk. Then add sugar. Mix until the sugar dissolves. Add cottage cheese to the bowl, begin to mix the mass with a fork. It is not necessary to beat the curd mass with a blender, otherwise the mass will become very rare, and for the sochniki, the filling should keep its shape. We also add flour and sour cream to the curd mass.

13. We shift the future sochniki onto a baking sheet with parchment paper. If your paper is not oiled, I recommend doing this so that our pastries do not stick to the paper and can be easily removed.

14. By this time, the oven is heated to t-180 °, top - bottom mode. Bake for twenty five minutes. We make sure that the sochniki with cottage cheese are reddened, but not burnt. The sochniki are baked to a pleasant, golden crust, let them cool and sprinkle with powdered sugar. For a glossy surface, before baking, the sochniki can be covered with whipped yolk, but this is optional.
