Cottage Cheese Puff Pastry
Baking margarine can be substituted for butter.
You can also make the pastry by placing cottage cheese, butter, and flour in the bowl of a food processor; pulse several times until a soft dough forms. Knead and form dough as instructed in Step 2.
This dough will be soft and spongy; the whole process of bringing the dough together, gently kneading, and folding will only take a minute or two.
Freeze remaining uncooked dough for future use, or leave in the fridge for up to 5 days.
For jam-filled crescents: drop 1 teaspoon jam in center of each triangle; roll up triangles and bake as directed.
Baked crescents can be stored at cool room temperature, covered, for up to 5 days or refrigerated.
