DIRECTIONS

  • Add salt to flour and sift if needed.
  • Use a food processor to quickly cut chilled butter and cottage cheese into flour as with making any pastry dough (process until dough forms ball). Two dinner knives will also work well, if a food processor is not available.
  • Divide dough into 4 equal parts, form into balls, wrap in plastic wrap and chill overnight or for at least 4 hours.
  • Remove chilled dough balls from the refrigerator one at a time and sprinkle with flour.
  • Roll each ball into a 8-10 inch circle on a well floured surface.
  • Cut circles into 8 wedges (pie slice style).
  • Place 1 teaspoons of cooled filling near edge of wide end of wedge, roll up towards small end and form each cookie into a crescent (horn).
  • Place folded side down on ungreased cookie sheet.
  • Bake in preheated oven (400F) for 15-20 minutes.
  • Place on rack to cool and sprinkle immediately with powdered sugar.
  • FILLING.
  • Place all filling ingredients into heavy saucepan (cast iron preferred).
  • While stirring continuously, cook until it forms a thick solid sticky mass.
  • Set aside to cool thoroughly before use.
