Preparation / Directions:
These are very simple, but you will find NO better cookie anywhere! On the
down side, they do require advanced preparation (overnight is best).
Included are a couple of filling recipes, but a can of pre-made will work
too. (Apricot is best) When rolling out dough, try to keep it as chilled
as possible. To cream the cottage cheese, it helps if you have a food
processor or blender, but a fork an d a strong arm will do in a pinch.
Mix ingredients and chill at least 6 hours. Roll to 1/4" thickness. Cut
into 2 or 3 inch squares, and place filling or preserves in center of
square. Bring corners over filling and seal together. Bake at 350 - 25 to
30 minutes. Remove and dust with powdered sugar. Pineapple Filling:
Combine ingredients in sauce pan, cook stirring constantly until
thickened. Cool. Apricot Filling: Simmer apricot 10 minutes. Add sugar and
simmer 10 minutes more. Remove from heat and add butter and cinnamon.
