Farmer’s cheese, or tvaroh (Творо́г) or tvarog, is a curd cheese that is similar to cottage cheese or ricotta but much drier and crumblier. It is the main ingredient in these pancakes. It’s easy to find in Slavic countries but it can be a challenge to locate in the United States.
Because the brand of Farmer’s Cheese that I used was so wet, you can also substitute ricotta cheese or dry cottage cheese without adjusting the recipe measurements. Drain any excess liquid from those options.
