RECIPE MADE WITH LOVE BY
"I am an American transplanted from Dallas to Iceland by marriage to a native Icelander & I retired to become his "Kitchen Queen". We love to entertain our family & friends, so I have an eclectic collection of recipes. I especially love simple, easy-fix, flexible & make-ahead recipes - BUT also like challenging myself on occasion. I enjoy baking & food photography. I am devoted to the "More is Always Better Principle" & apply it liberally to bacon, butter & garlic. I can have ingredient issues due to availability here in Iceland & my DH is medically diet-restricted from some ingredients as well. Either situation might require me to modify a recipe, but I will do my best to be true to your recipes & fair/honest in my reviews. Mary Pat (aka twissis)"

Grabbed and Tagged for 1-2-3 hit wonders game. These were very delish and easy to make. I was really impressed. I couldn't taste the cottage cheese but I think it helped in binding the dough. It's definitely a keeper! Nice with a cup of coffee. So glad I picked this one. Thanks for sharing!! :chef: ~V
twissis what a great little treat. I would have never known there was cottage cheese in this. I thought my edges were sealed, but some of the filling leaked out, but not enough to matter as the taste of these is just wonderful. Very simple to make. I didn't chill my dough very long, since I always have trouble with that type of dough, but it was easy to work with. Thanks sweetie for a great keeper.
This recipe is being entered for ZWT II & my source is fooddownunder.com. Funny the things you can find after so many yrs of loving & craving Czech kolaches. I was raised on them, but this kolache variation sounds wonderful to me & is so easy to make. This may well become my NEW favorite kolache! (Yield depends on size of tart made & has been "roughly estimated". Time does not include time to chill the dough.)
