  1. In a large bowl, beat butter and cottage cheese until blended. Combine flour and salt; gradually beat into the butter mixture. Cover and refrigerate overnight or until dough is easy to handle.
  2. Divide dough into thirds. On a lightly floured surface, roll each portion into a 10-in. circle. Cut each circle into 12 wedges. Roll up wedges from the wide ends and place point side down 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on pans on wire racks.
  3. For glaze, in a small saucepan, melt butter. Stir in the confectioner's sugar, vanilla and enough water to achieve desired consistency. Drizzle over rolls. Yield: 3 dozen.

"Amazing! Will be making these again. I also made 24 instead of 36. Totally going to play with the glaze flavor next time...maybe lemon? orange? Yum!"

"Quick, easy and very tasty. I made 24 instead of the amount indicated, cutting 8 wedges from each of the 3 dough pieces."
