I just found a new recipe that is a "keeper", as my kids would say. I love to try new recipes and try to make one at least once a week. This week we tried Glazed Cheese Croissants. They were amazingly easy and everyone liked them, except my husband who has never liked any croissants.
1/2 stick butter, room temperature
3/4 cup small curd cottage cheese
1 c flour
Combine all ingredients using a cutting motion and two knives or using a pastry blender to form dough. (Little bits of butter and cottage cheese should still be visible to get the flakiness.) Wrap in plastic wrap and chill 2 hours. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. On floured surface (I floured and rolled it out on my baking stone), roll into a 14 inch circle. Cut into 8 triangles (I used my pizza cutter). Roll each triangle from wide end to tip, turning ends to form a crescent shape. Place on baking stone or cookie sheet. Bake 30 min. till golden. Cool 10 minutes on wire rack. Meanwhile combine 1/2 c. powdered sugar with a bit of milk to form drizzly glaze. Drizzle over croissants. Serve warm or cooled.
I made up a double batch for my family of 6. We took them and red pears to Marvin's track meet. It was freezing and we were not adequately dressed, so the girl's and I had a picnic in the van while DH watched the meet. The girl's thought it was a blast!
