Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup Daisy Cottage Cheese
  • 1 cup sugar, divided
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup Daisy Cottage Cheese
  • 1 cup sugar, divided
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, beat the butter on medium speed for 30 seconds. Beat in the cottage cheese, 3/4 cup sugar and the vanilla on medium speed for 1 minute, scraping the bowl occasionally, until fluffy (the mixture may look curdled).
  2. Stir in the flour, baking powder and salt until a dough forms. Place the dough in a zip-top bag and refrigerate for 2 hours or until firm.
  3. Stir together the remaining 1/4 cup sugar and the cinnamon and set aside.
  4. Heat the oven to 375 degrees. On a lightly floured surface, roll the chilled dough into 1/4-inch thickness. Cut the dough into 2 1/2-inch circles. Dip one side of each circle in the sugar-cinnamon mixture. Fold the dough in quarters, cinnamon sides together, pinching the center slightly. Place the cookies 2 inches apart on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake for 16 to 20 minutes or until golden brown.
  5. Remove the cookies from the cookie sheet and cool on a wire rack.
