Fruit Crescents

March 1, 2011

Ingredients

Dough:
8-ounce carton creamed cottage cheese
1 cup butter or margarine, softened
2 cups sifted flour
1/4 cup butter, melted

Filling #1:
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons raisins

Filling #2:
1/4 cup raspberry jam

Filling #3:
1/4 cup chopped citron
1 tablespoon sugar

Directions

Combine cottage cheese and softened butter in a bowl; blend. Add flour and mix until dough forms a ball. Divide into thirds and chill 1 hour. Preheat oven to 375°. Roll each portion of dough into a circle – 1/8 inch thick. Brush with melted butter. Spread on of the fillings on each rolled-out circle. Cut each into 16 pie-shaped wedges. Beginning at the outer edge, roll wedges tightly; place, point down, on a greased cookie sheet. Bake 20 to 25 minutes – until lightly browned.
