Cottage Cheese Cookies

(3 Votes)
MAKES
about 7 dozen cookies
COOK TIME
15 Min

My mom used to make these for my aunt who likes a very soft cookie that isn't too sweet.

What You'll Need:
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 5 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 pound cottage cheese, undrained
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 4 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat cookie sheets with cooking spray.
     
  2. In a large bowl, combine melted butter, granulated sugar, salt, baking powder, flour, and eggs until blended. Stir in cottage cheese, milk, and vanilla.
     
  3. Roll dough into 1-1/2-inch balls and place on prepared cookie sheets. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until golden. Let stand 2 minutes; then sprinkle with confectioners' sugar and cool on a wire rack.
Notes

These cookies don't freeze well, so you'd better invite a whole gang over to help eat 'em all!

Very good and tasty little bit different too Use full fat or 4 % do not use the fat free or 1% or cookies wont come out right

Can we cut the ingredients in half if we dont have a gang to help eat them? We ask again what percent milkfat cottage cz?

My guess is to use the full fat cottage cheese. Will give the cookie a better texture.

Are you using 4% cottage cheese?

I have made these cookies for years but instead of using the vanilla extract I use lemon extract and it gives the cookies a wonderful lemon flavor....
