Mom's Savory and Sweet Cookies

I used to bake these cookies with my mom when I was a kid and now I bake them with my son. They go well with tea, coffee or a cup of milk. Below is the recipe.


2 cups of white flour
1 cup and 2 tablespoons of butter
1 cup and 2 tablespoons of small curd cottage cheese
1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
sugar for later


1. In a large bowl mix together butter and cottage cheese. I usually let butter sit in a room temperature for about 1 hour to get soft and then slice it. Add baking soda and flour into the bowl and combine all the ingredients together. I started by mixing the ingredients with a hand mixer but then finished it by kneading the dough with my hands. Make the dough into a ball and put it in a fridge for 45 minutes or longer.

2. Preheat the oven to 400F. Take the dough from the fridge, cut a small piece and roll it out on a table dusted with flour. Cut circles with a special cookie cutter or (like me) use a wine glass.

3. Take one circle and dip it one side into sugar, then fold it in half with sugar side inside and then fold again - so you get a triangle. Sugar must be inside so that it is does not burn. Repeat.

4. Assemble cookies on a baking sheet and bake in the oven for 13-15 minutes or until golden brown.
