Libaláb (do not confuse it with lúdláb) implies jam filled, folded cookies, which are rolled in granulated sugar before baking. The cookies are named after their shape that resembles the feet of a goose. The dough contains a considerable amount of cottage cheese, which is passed through a sieve. The cookies are usually filled with apricot jam or plum butter, but feel free to use Nutella or any other filling you prefer. (Source of the recipe: Szoky konyhája)

Hungarian cottage cheese

This is what Hungarian túró looks like

You often ask me what kind of cottage cheese (or curd cheese or farmer's cheese - call it what you want) I use in the recipes. In Hungary the store-bought cottage cheese is dry and crumbly as you can see in the picture. So if a recipe calls for túró, I mean this type. If you can't obtain túró, you can try to make your own from whole milk. Click on the link below.

Metric system vs cup

In Hungary metric units are in use, all the recipes on this website are based on this system, so a kitchen scale is necessary. Since I’m not familiar with cup as a measurement unit, I convert grams to cups by using an online converter. The values in brackets, therefore, are only approximate volumes, so, please, double-check them before you start cooking.
