"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

    I used apricot preserves for this and it tasted good. I guess you can really just enjoy it when it's still warm from the oven, otherwise the next day it, you can use them as shurikens cause they get quite hard. Good with some tea though! :)

    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.
