A partridge in a pear tree…


I don’t have a partridge, (birds are really messy in the house) or a pear tree…(I live in Michigan=too cold). BUT, I do have the recipe to the yummy cookies I made with my neighbor!!!  Here you go mom  🙂

Best Ever Christmas CookiesIMG_0380[1]


4C Flour

1lb Large curd Cottage Cheese

1lb Butter

*Drain Cottage Cheese. Mix all ingredients together and store overnight in Refrigerator.

Nut mixture:

1 1/2 c brown sugar

1c crushed pecans and walnuts

2TBS cinnamon

Divide gough into 8 pieces. Roll one piece out at a time to mimic a pie crust in shape. Brush with melted butter. Sprinkle nut mixture over the butter. Leave about 1/2 inch edge clean around entire circle. Using a pizza cutter, cut into 16 pieces. Roll each triangle into a crescent shape cookies. Place on a parchment paper covered cookie sheet. Bake at 375 for 8-10 minutes. Watch the cookies the last two minutes, they burn fast.

Coffee Drizzle:

1c powdered sugar

1TBS butter

Enough coffee to make a liquid glaze.

Dash of cinnamon.

Mix all the ingredients together. Once the cookies are cool, drizzle coffee glaze over the cookies. Allow glaze to set up. Store cookies in an air tight container. Cookies will only last about two days (well in my house anyways) They will last about 2 weeks.
