Cottage Cheese Dinner Rolls...



1/2 cup warm water
2 T yeast
1 cup cottage cheese, rinsed in lukewarm water and drained
1 1/2 T honey
1/4 t baking soda
1 t salt
1 egg
2 cups spelt or wheat flour
1 1/2 to 2 cups plain flour

Dissolve yeast in warm water. Add cottage cheese, honey, soda, salt, and egg. Mix well.
Add spelt/wheat flour. Gradually add plain flour just until you have a workable dough.
Allow to rise, covered, for one hour. Punch down. Roll into 12 balls and place in buttered
9X9 baking dish (or similar size). Allow to rise in warm place for 30 minutes. Bake at 350
for 20 to 22 minutes until golden. Butter and sprinkle with parsley if you like. Serve hot!

These are perfect for vegetable soups!

*Tips: Toss some herbs in your dough to go with different meals.
*Food Storage Tip: My cottage cheese expired in March and had been unopened and was still very good.

You're welcome Miss Connie!

You would be surprised how light these are in spite of the cottage cheese :-)
