This recipe for sweet cheese strudel filling is made with regular creamed cottage cheese and cream cheese.

Every cook has his or her favorite. If you omit the sugar, you can turn it into what Serbs and Croatians call a salty (savory) cheese filling.

You will use the yolks only from two eggs so try making a meringue torte or another treat with the leftover egg whites or freeze them.​

This makes enough to fill two strudels. Here's a great strudel dough recipe.

What You'll Need

  • 2 pounds cottage cheese (creamed, undrained)
  • 8 ounces cream cheese (softened)
  • 6 tablespoons tapioca
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar (white)
  • 2 large egg yolks

How to Make It

  1. In a large bowl, combine cottage cheese, cream cheese, tapioca, sugar, and egg yolks. It doesn't have to be perfectly smooth.
  2. Cover and refrigerate overnight or at least 2 hours.
  3. Use to fill your favorite strudel dough.
