Cottage Cheese Rolls recipe

Staying with friends in the US I lend a hand in the kitchen from time to time. At one point I was presented with a recipe for cottage cheese biscuits (what we call buns or rolls in Europe). They turned out so well that I want to share the recipe with you!

They tasted particularly good after a brisk walk in winter wonder land! 

Adapted from a Mennonite Cookbook from the 1970's, these moist and yeasty rolls have become a family favorite.

  • 2 packets dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 2 cups cottage cheese - heated to luke warm
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 4 - 5 cups bread flour
