You can also precook dumplings and store them in the freezer. Place uncooked lazy dumpling pieces on the cutting board sprinkled with flour. Then sprinkle more flour over dumplings and put them into the freezer for an hour. In 1 hour, you can divide them into necessary portions, put them into zip-bags and place in the freezer. Store lazy dumplings up to 3 weeks. When necessary, boil cottage cheese dumplings frozen (2-3 minutes after water reboils).
