Don't know the dish , but Kiev is in Ukraine - not Russia. (a better heritage)

When sanlit's grandmother lived there, it was part of the USSR.

It sounds like a strudel made with farmer's cheese or quark. I know farmer's cheese was readily available in Ukraine and Russia. Check some Ukrainian cookbooks or websites--or look in Please to the Table, which has many recipes from Russia.

There is a cook on the site called Kukla. If you look at her cook's page, you can see the recipes she has posted, and find a link if you want to contact her directly.

It is called Pashka.Both sweet and savory versions exist and you can find many recipes online. Do a search and that will help you recreate your grandma's as you remember it.

My apologies, somehow I missed the "Dough" part of your description. Pashka is typically served with a sweet yellow bread to accompany it, and though your recipe is likely something else, I assume it is possible for a variation to exist in which the cheese gets baked. I've seen savory versions being done that way. But whenever somebody says Russian cheese pudding I think of Pashka.
