  2. Cut dough into 4 quarters. Roll each quarter out individually, about 1/8 inch thick. Cut into 8 inch strips, as wide as you like.

I made half the dough recipe and ended up with 5 dozen cookies! Good thing I made a whole batch of the filling. These cookies are easy to make and wonderfully delicious. They are just a bit time consuming. I used foil covered round colthesd pins that I rubbed a little shortening on. Cut the strips with a pizza cutter to make things go quicker. Make sure you mix the cottage cheese and the sugar/butter for a good bit to blend everything and break up the cheese curds. This will help with the 'cottage cheese after taste'. When cooking the flour and milk to a paste, make sure it is VERY THICK and refrigeratre it for several hours or else the filling will be too runny. Depending on the humidity and the thickness of the paste you may need to add more powdered sugar to make a stiffer filling.


I had this recipe before and misplaced it so I decided to look for it again on and to my surpise here it is. I am so glad to have it again they are not hard to make just take awhile with having to refirgerate the dough and cut all the strips ,but the more times you make it the quicker you get Practice makes Prefectness. I have made them MANY times and the are fairly easy wants you get the hang of them Enjoy everyone :-Þ Yummy


awesome recipe!!!! follow instructions to a tee, because any subs will alter recipe too much have made 3 times already and the last time a tried to replace cottage cheese with sour cream and strained yogurt, makes cookie too moist stick with cottage cheese. make sure that you cream the sugar and shortening about 5 min to get the best blend. Added note : I blend my cottage cheese in blender til it is smooth.
