Tuesdays with Dorie: Cottage Cheese PuffletsSeptember 22, 2009 at 1:35 am | Posted in cookies & bars, groups, sweet things, tuesdays with dorie | 31 Comments
This is my second TWD in a row showcasing 45-45-90 triangles. I majored in math back in the day and am seriously thinking of turning this blog into a weekly cooking/geometry lesson (changing the name to “a whisk and a protractor,” of course). But before I start handing out purple-inked dittos to everyone, let’s review these Cottage Cheese Pufflets, which Jacque of Daisy Lane Cakes chose for TWD.
I really like cottage cheese, but I also really never buy it. Don’t know why…it just doesn’t pop up on my grocery radar screen very often. I was glad, then, to have a little leftover from these cookies to eat for lunch with carrot sticks. I was also glad that these cookies were fantastic, because while I was curious to try them, I really wasn’t sure what to expect from a cookie with cottage cheese in the dough. But I’ll tell you what to expect…they are puffy and light and flaky, but with a little chew. (You can also expect the dough to be super sticky to work with, so chill it every step of the way and your life will be easier.) The dough itself isn’t too sweet, but it’s complimented by a bit of jam in the center. I filled my pufflets with some of my homemade Easy Plum Jam. Such a pretty color poking out through the steam hole (and through the sides…hmmm), don’t you think?
