Cottage Cheese Crescent Rolls

Seriously - there are only 3 ingredients here. They turn out sort of like the little appetizer cheesy bread balls at Rodizio Grill in Salt Lake City.

Combine in food processor or by hand, mixing just until dough forms soft ball that holds itself together:
1 c. butter, chilled (you could probably use less, they were good when I made them, but too greasy)

2 c. flour

1 c. cottage cheese (regular or lowfat)

Shape into balls approximately 2-1/2 inches in diameter. Cover and chill well.
Roll dough balls into one big ball and roll out as for pie crust on lightly floured surface (9-10” diameter). Cut into wedges of preferred size. Shape into crescents (roll, beginning at widest end.) Place on ungreased or parchment-lined shallow-rimmed pan, point down.
Bake 12-15 minutes in pre-heated 375˚ oven until golden brown.
NOTE: This is a very soft, tender dough. May be frozen before or after shaping. makes 1-2 dozen, depending on size.
