This recipe is an unusual but delicious way to use cottage cheese. Friends of ours make these every year for a party that follows our fall cattle drive. They are so delicious they're always the first food to disappear.

"I made these savory- various cheese and spices on them. Even my two picky eaters are gobbling them up! Can't wait to try them with icing."

"These are amazing! I was shocked how light and fluffy they turned out considering they have no yeast, baking soda, or baking powder. They are super addicting!! The only thing I changed was that I added more milk in the frosting - it was not even spreadable as written; pretty dry and crumbly. easy fix, though, and this recipe is totally worth it! (Also, note that I used 1% cottage cheese and it still turned out great!) Will make these over and over again!"

"Do I understand that there is no yeast in these rolls?? It sounds to good to be true, but I will certainly try this recipe..."
