These cookies need time to make as the dough needs to cool and "rest" for several hours. They are worth the effort.

INGREDIENTS (for 3 servings):


  • In large bowl, beat together butter or margarine and cottage cheese til light and fluffy. Add flour until dough forms a ball.
  • Divide dough into 3 equal portions. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm.
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) and grease cookie sheets.
  • To Make Filling: Combine egg whites, nuts, water, and ground cinammon. Mix well and set aside.
  • On a floured surface roll 1 portion of dough into a 10 inch circle. Spread circle with 1/3 of the filling to within approximately 1/2 inch of the edge.
  • Cut circle into 24 pie-shaped wedges. Beginning at outer edge roll up each wedge tightly. Place point side down on cookie sheet 1 1/2 inches apart. Bake 13-15 minutes or until golden (be sure to watch carefully as these cookies burn easily).
  • Remove to rack to cool. Repeat process with each remaining portion of dough and filling.
