Please note that the cottage cheese mass is of a very delicate texture. Long-term storage in the fridge before serving is possible only if the desserts covered with neutral or other glaze, sprinkled with powdered sugar, cookie chips or pistachio flour mixed with powdered sugar, etc. Without coating, desserts quickly wind and dry.
