Last week a friend had mentioned a recipe she once had for cookies she loved that only had 3 ingredients--cottage cheese, flour and something else. She had lost the recipe and couldn't remember the other ingredient. Country Guy whipped out his phone and found the recipe in about 30 seconds! He is a great surfer!
Our granddaughter was visiting us this evening while home from college so we decided to make these cookies. They didn't sound good at all, but our friend, Donna, insisted they were excellent--and they were! What fun we had sharing the experience we had of making--and eating--them with Sydney!
Here is the recipe from Taste Of Home magazine:
Cottage Cheese Cookies
2 c. sifted all-purpose flour
1 c. cold butter
1 c. plus 2 T. cream-style cottage cheese
Raspberry, peach, strawberry jam, caramel topping with pecans, or anything else you want to try.
1 c. confectioners sugar
1/8 tsp. vanilla or almond extract
Place flour in a medium bowl; cut in butter as for pie crust. Blend in cottage cheese until mixture forms a ball (can use a food processor). Chill 1 hour.
On a floured surface, roll dough to 1/8-in. thickness. Cut with a 3-in. round cutter. Place a level 1/4 teaspoon jam in center of each cookie. Moisten edges and fold in half; seal tightly with a fork. Place on lightly greased baking sheets; prick tops with fork.
- Bake at 400° for 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on wire racks. For glaze, combine the sugar, extract and enough milk to make thin spreading consistency; drizzle over cooled cookies.
