Thanksgiving is over! Now the holiday season is officially here. Thank goodness I shop all year long or I would have a nervous breakdown! Next week I start baking cookies for my friends and family. I make these delicious cottage cheese nut horns and I want to share the recipe with you all!
Two sticks of softened sweet butter
One container of cottage cheese small curd
4 cups of all-purpose flour
1/2 cup apricot preserves
1 cup crushed walnuts
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
In a large bowl mix together the two sticks of softened butter with the cottage cheese. Add 4 cups of sifted flour slowly until a dough is formed. Form a ball and cut into four equal parts. Wrap each piece of dough in wax paper or cellophane paper and refrigerate overnight. The dough will be hard when removed from the refrigerator but it softens up very quickly. Roll out each section of dough into 8 inch rounds. With a brush or a spoon brush the preserves over the entire surface. Next take the cinnamon sugar mixture and sprinkle that on top of the preserves. Then sprinkle with crushed walnuts and be generous with them. Cut into triangles and roll each triangle starting from the large end to the small. Shape into a horn and place on and non-greased cookie sheet. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes at 350°. Let cool and sprinkle with powdered sugar. That’s it, I promise you you won’t be able to eat just one!
If you want you could prepare the cookies and freeze them before baking. Let me know how you like them!
