6075 Min

These fluffy Topfennockerl curd cheese dumplings won't be on the plate for long before they are polished off. Served chilled with a sweet and fruity cherry and mint compote, this tempting dessert is simply irresistible. The refreshing coolness of mint is down to the menthol. The flavor of mint is resistant to heat, so it can be cooked for longer periods of time.

Ingredients 4 Portions

  • For the Topfennockerl curd cheese dumplings

    • 250 gCurd cheese
    • 80 gPowdered sugar
    • 5 pcs.Leaves of gelatin
    • 200 gSour cream
    • 400 gWhipping cream
    • 1 pkt.Bourbon Vanilla Sugar
  • For the cherry compote


  1. 1

    First soften the gelatin in some water. Then beat the whipping cream until it forms stiff peaks and then stir in the curd cheese, Vanilla Sugar, sour cream and powdered sugar.

  2. 2

    Now squeeze the softened gelatin and warm it through in a pan. As soon as it is liquid, the gelatin can be stirred into the cream. Then leave to set overnight in the fridge.

  3. 3

    To make the compote, wash the cherries thoroughly first. Then cut the cherries in half and remove the stones.

  4. 4

    Put the water and sugar in a pan. Add the cherries, season with spearmint and thyme, bring to a boil and allow to simmer over a low heat for around 3 minutes.

  5. 5

    Next mix the cornstarch with a little water to get the compote to the correct consistency. Remove the pan from the heat and allow the compote to cool.

  6. 6

    While the compote is cooling down, shape the dumplings from the mixture. It's best if you use two small spoons to do this.

  7. 7

    Dish the dumplings up straight away and serve with the compote. Garnish with a couple of fresh cherries.


    Warm buttered breadcrumbs finish the dumplings off perfectly.
