Hard baked matzoh balls

Does anyone have a recipe for hard, baked matzoh balls. The kind you plop into soup, and press down with a spoon so they fill up with the soup? I think the origin of these is Lithuanian or Latvian.

    1. Thanks for the tip, hindyg, but those aren't it. My mother used to make them and called them "halkahs", but I've never been able to find a recipe for them. All my mother would tell me was "a box of matzo meal, some schmaltz and boiling water, and then enough eggs until it looks right. Then you bake them in 1/4" of oil until they're done." I tried to copy the recipe, but never met with much success.
