  1. Combine cottage cheese and 1 cup of butter in a bowl. Mix thoroughly, then gradually stir in the flour. Dough will be sticky. Divide dough into thirds and wrap with waxed paper. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  2. Preheat an oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Lightly grease a baking sheet.
  3. Combine the remaining 1/4 cup of butter with the brown sugar, cinnamon, pecans, and raisins. Set aside. Roll one ball of dough at a time to a 9 inch circle on a floured surface, while keeping the remaining dough chilled. Spread 1 tablespoon of the optional orange marmalade over the circle. Gently press 1/3 of the nut mixture into the dough. Cut the circle into 16 wedges. Roll each wedge tightly, starting with the wide end. Place the cookie point-side down on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining dough. Beat the egg white with the water in a small bowl, then brush the mixture onto each cookie.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, 18 to 20 minutes.

I was afraid these were going to be too sweet, but they were perfect!! I make the recipe exactly as written but without the orange marmalade. These are more like a pastry than a cookie. My da...

I can not say if these are the best since I've never had them before but I truly liked these. Since I didn't have apricot jam I used strawberry preserves and black berry preserves. They were d...

I found this recipe some time ago and sound good so tried it today but wish I had read the reviews first. Flavor was good but next time I will put them close together so that the syrup doesn't b...

These were tasty, but much of the filling leaked out and burnt onto my cookie sheet. After breaking off the burnt filling and arranging them attractively on a plate, my husband and his family d...

Thank you very much for sharing this recipe. Everyone loves it for its delicious taste :-)

These are fantastic!!! So delicious you won't want to share. I haven't tried them with raisins or marmalade but will make those next. Thanks Sandy Z for the posting this is a definite keeper.

I thought the recipe was fairly good, but definitely warn that you want to be sure to *fully* cool them before packaging. I also agree that the filling might have been a bit much - it definitely...
