These tasty cookies with cottage cheese turn out both crispy and juicy at the same time and that is all thanks to the ingredients and the way you combine them. Make sure to leave cottage cheese grains visible in the dough. They will insure that you will have that juiciness after baking. Besides, these cookies have a pleasant bonus: you can adjust the level of sweetness to your own taste.

Cottage Cheese Cookie Dough Ingredients:

Cottage Cheese Cookies Ingredients

  • 300 g cottage cheese;
  • 200-250 g all-purpose flour;
  • 150 g unsalted butter, softened;
  • 1 egg;
  • 1 tsp. baking powder;
  • 150 g sugar.

How to make cookies with cottage cheese:

  • Preheat oven at 350˚F/180˚C.
  • In a bowl, combine cottage cheese with softened butter (take butter out of the fridge 30-40 minutes before cooking). Thoroughly grind these two ingredients together with a spoon or a fork until they are combined into one smooth mixture. I do not like to use a blender or a mixer for this recipe as they make the texture of the cottage cheese too fine.
