4 to 6 servings


  • 1/2 cup toasted walnuts
  • 1 pound farmer's cheese
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • A couple dashes cinnamon
  • A couple pinches salt
  • Crackers or bread, for serving


Preheat oven 400 degrees F.

Lay walnuts on baking sheet. Roast and shake once or twice to insure even toasting. Roast until a shade darker and aromatic, about 15 minutes.

Remove walnuts and set aside to cool.

Turn the oven to broil.

Place farmer's cheese in large mixing bowl. Add the remaining ingredients and the toasted walnuts. Mix thoroughly. Transfer mixture to a small baking dish (aluminum disposable is fine).

Place under broiler until brown and bubbly on top, about 2 to 3 minutes.

Serve hot or at room temperature with crackers of any kind or slices of crusty bread.
