Cottage Cheese Biscuits
Cottage Cheese Biscuits recipe
Sift together the flour, salt, sugar, and baking powder.
Cut in butter or margarine until like coarse crumbs.
Make a well in centre of the dry ingredients and place in it the eggs and 1½ cups of cottage cheese.
Work the whole together, just enough to bind, using more cottage cheese if necessary.
Turn onto a lightly floured board and knead very gently a few times.
Pat to a 1 inch thickness.
Cut into biscuit shapes and place on a greased baking sheet, or divide dough in half and pat each half into a greased 8 inch round cake pan.
Bake at 450 F for 12 to 16 minutes or until browned.
Makes 18 to 20 biscuits 2 inches in diameter.
Note: You can use any kind of creamed cottage cheese but the amount will depend on the moisture content of the cheese.
It will vary from about 1½ cups to 2¼ cups or even slightly more to make a dough that will hold together.
