Besides apple, a common Eastern European strudel filling is sweet cheese. If you can't find dry curd cheese, you might want to make your own farmers cheese from scratch.

Freeze leftover egg whites and save for leftover egg white recipes.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 10 minutes

Yield: Enough filling for 2 Strudels


  • 2 pounds dry curd or farmers cheese or ricotta, sieved or blended until smooth
  • 8 ounces sour cream
  • 5 egg yolks
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons salt or to taste
  • 1/2 pound (2 sticks butter), melted


  1. Mix all ingredients until thoroughly combined.

  2. Refrigerate until ready to fill strudel dough.
