Step by step method
Break the egg into a bowl, add sugar, salt, vanillin and mix with a whisk.
Add softened butter and stir until smooth.
We put the cottage cheese and knead again with a whisk or a regular fork until smooth.
Mix flour with baking powder and send to the base in small parts.
Knead the dough with your hands. It should be soft and not stick to your hands. We divide into two equal parts.
We put one part aside, roll the other into a layer 3 mm thick.
Using a glass or a confectionery ring, cut out circles from the dough with a diameter of 7-7.5 cm. Take three circles and put them overlapping each other. Roll tightly. Cut in half and straighten the petals. From one blank, two roses are obtained. Lay them out on a baking sheet.
We do the same with the second part of the dough. Bake in an oven preheated to 180 degrees for about 20-25 minutes. Remove from oven, let cool and sprinkle with powdered sugar. Delicious and fragrant cottage cheese cookies are ready! It remains only to pour a cup of hot tea.
Tips & variations
It is imperative to add the baking powder to the dough, otherwise the Rosochki will not “spread out” during baking.
If the dough is soft and moist, sticky, put it in the fridge for a while. Due to the butter, it will harden and become convenient for rolling.
Line a baking dish with parchment paper and brush with melted butter.
The shape of the cookies is so beautiful, graceful. You can safely serve on the festive table!
You can sprinkle the cookies with cinnamon before baking. Then it will acquire a breathtaking aroma.
