Cottage Cheese Butterhorn Rolls is a fun little recipe when you’re called on to make something for your next family gathering.

This recipe was introduced to me by my husband’s Aunt Marlene, who made them for a church potluck one year. They are simply fabulous. Full of flavor and so very tender with just a hint of sweetness. They are small, so perfect for a buffet table where you grab-and-go. Plus, they would work for a brunch, a dinner, or even as a surprise treat at a picnic.

What makes these rolls unique is the cottage cheese that you work into your bread dough. It sounds weird. But it works well and makes the most tender dough. Be sure to buy the small curd container of cottage cheese. And always use real butter.

 

Ingredients Needed to Make Cottage Cheese Butterhorn Rolls

  • butter, at room temperature
  • small curd cottage cheese
  • all-purpose flour
  • salt

Icing:

  • powdered sugar
  • whole milk
  • vanilla extract

 

Instructions for Making this Recipe

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In mixing bowl, cream together butter and cottage cheese. Add flour and salt. Mix well. Place in a covered bowl and refrigerate for four hours.

Divide dough into three parts. On floured surface, form each into a ball and roll into a circle until dough is 1/8″-1/4″ thick. Slice into 12 wedges. Roll up each wedge, starting at the wide end (like a crescent). Place point side down on a baking sheet lined with a silicone baking mat.

Bake rolls for 30-40 minutes until golden brown. Cool on wire racks.

To Make the Icing:

In a small bowl combine the powdered sugar, whole milk, and vanilla extract. Whisk together until smooth. Drizzle icing over warm rolls.
