Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  • Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in a mixing bowl.

  • Flour hands to keep dough from sticking. Scoop out tablespoons of batter and roll into balls. Place on prepared baking sheet and slightly flatten.

  • Bake in preheated oven until edges start to lightly brown, 15 to 17 minutes. Cool completely before glazing.

  • Mix powdered sugar, 2 1/4 teaspoons lemon juice, 2 1/4 teaspoons lime juice, 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest, and 1/2 teaspoon lime zest together in a small bowl. Drizzle or brush over cooled cookies.

I think 1 1/4 cups of flour is not enough. if I understand right 8oz of cottage cheese is about 1 cup. so when I added less then 1 cup of cheese the dough became too watery and it is impossible to roll it even with floured hands. so or you add more flour or less cheese. but when you add more flour you need to add baking powder maybe sugar etc... Or you can make cheese less watery but I didn't find this step in the recipe description. finally I made cookies but I didn't use hands to roll balls (because of watery dough) I just scooped the batter with a spoon onto a cookies sheet. Well they don't have such a beautiful round form but taste good and smell lemon lime?? I didn't make the glaze because the cookies didn't turn as I expected. Read More
