Farmer Cheese Buns with Seeds Baked in Jars

Bake it in jars, close while still hot with lids, wait for click-sound from lids… These buns can stay in cool place about a month. Any time you can open it, add whipped cream, or jam, or liquor, or nothing and have it with cup of tea. Cottage cheese, cream cheese and ricotta can be used. Use any favorite seeds, I added flax and chia, but sunflower and sesame works great too. Recipe adapted from La Perla Blog (Russian).
