500 g Cottage Cheese
1 cup Softened Margarine
2 1/3 cups Flour

Cream margarine. Add cottage cheese. Stir in flour. Chill for 3 hours. Divide into 3 equal portions. Roll each portion into circle. Cut each circle into 12 wedges. Roll up each wedge, beginning with the wide end. Bake for 30 minutes at 350. Great as is or for a sweeter taste spread some jam on the dough before rolling up or glaze with icing while warm. So easy and delicious!
