Easy Cottage Cheese Cookies Recipe

Share

This easy cottage cheese cookies recipe is very easy to make. The cookies taste REALLY good. I like this recipe because it doesn’t require a lot of sugar to make them taste sweet enough. They are filling and satisfying. These cottage cheese cookies pair really well with a glass of raw creamy grass-fed milk.

How much sugar to use? 

I like making these cottage cheese cookies because you really don’t need much sugar to make them taste good. You don’t add sugar to the dough, you only dip the surface into sugar, so you can control how much sugar gets into each cookie. They taste really good even with minimal sugar!

Soft butter vs cold butter – does it matter when making these cottage cheese cookies?

You can use softened butter or cold butter right out of the fridge to make these cottage cheese cookies.

The cookies will taste the same but the preparation method will be different.

When you use softened butter, you mix up the dough faster but you will have to place the dough into the fridge so it hardens. This is good if you don’t have to bake these cookies immediately.

When you use hard cold butter, you will have to use a shredder or a food processor to make a buttery flour to form a dough. It can be messy, but you will be able to bake the cookies immediately without needing to place the dough into the fridge.

  8. Mix coconut sugar and Ceylon cinnamon in a deep plate. Set aside.
  9. Roll the dough until about 1/4 inches thick. Cut circles using a cup or a cookie cutter.
  10. Get one circle and dip one side of the circle into the sugar mixture. Fold the circle in half. Dip one side of the half into sugar and fold again. Transfer to the baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Continue with other circles.
  11. Get a fork and lightly press on each cookie.
  12. Bake the cottage cheese cookies until lightly browned, about 15 minutes.

How to make cottage cheese cookies with hard cold butter right out of the refrigerator:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
  2. Put the flour in a bowl and shred the butter using a manual shredder with big teeth. Dip the butter in the flour and shred. Then dip again and continue shredding.  Mix the shredded butter with flour gently to make a crumbly mixture as you continue shredding the butter. Alternatively, you can use a food processor to prepare the crumbly flour. Place the flour in a food processor bowl. Add chopped butetr. Pulse until you get a crumbly mixture. Be careful not to over-process. You need a crumbly mixture, not a sticky gooey one.
