Cottage Cheese Biscuits
1/2 pound sweet butter
1/2 pound flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 pound cottage cheese
1 egg yolk
In a mixing bowl, cut butter into flour and salt until mixture forms crumbs. If
the butter is cold, grate it. Sieve or rice the cottage cheese and combine with
butter mixture. Knead very fast, not more than a couple of minutes. Roll out the
dough on a floured board and fold it. Place in refrigerator for 30 minutes.
Repeat twice. Finally, roll out the dough to a one inch thickness. Cut into
rounds and with the point of a knife, score the tops of the biscuits in a
lattice pattern. Beat the egg yolk with one teaspoon of water and brush the
glaze on the biscuit tops. Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 20 to 25
minutes or until golden brown. Makes approximately 30 biscuits.
