Cottage Cheese Butterhorns

Recipe by CrystalB

Yet another of my mom's delicious recipes that I now make myself. These little treats take a bit of work, but are worth the effort. They also freeze nicely. Prep time does not include refrigeration time for dough.

I make these and they turned very nice. I used the cottage cheese and next time I would use cream cheese because the dough was too soft and hard to handle. I think there may be a difference between how Canadians call the cheese and how we yanks name it. You might have intended that I use what we call cream cheese. Thanks
