This recipe was passed to me by Anja, a friend in Germany. I love it because is simple and delicious 🙂

*“Schmand” is a fresh cream (similar to Crème Fraiche or whipping cream) that has a spoon-firm consistency. It is a lot like sour cream and has a has a lower fat content than Creme Fraiche. It is used in baking and cooking.  If you don’t find something similar, a pureed combination of cream cheese and cottage cheese is a great way to make a substitution for it. Smooth 16 ounces of Cottage Cheese in a blender, then add one 8 ounce package of Cream Cheese and blend well.

Eat Good, Feel Good!
