Start the dough for these attractive crescents the night before, and you’ll have rich, flaky golden rolls the next morning to enjoy with your coffee. A sweet drizzle makes the buttery rolls hard to resist.—Mary Schmittinger, Colgate, Wisconsin

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1-1/2 cups 4% small-curd cottage cheese
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • GLAZE:
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons water


  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.
