1/2 cup 4% fat cream-style cottage cheese (no substitutions)
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup butter (no substitutions)

1/2 cup cherry preserves
1 egg white

Granulated sugar

In a large mixing bowl, combine cottage cheese and flour. Cut in butter. Press dough together and flatten. Divide dough into quarters; wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate 4 hours or overnight.

On a well-floured surface, roll out 1 piece of dough into a rectangle about 1/16-inch thick. Dough will be sticky. Keep remaining dough refrigerated. With a sharp knife, cut rectangle into 2 1/2-inch squares. Transfer squares to greased baking sheets.

Make 1-inch diagonal cuts from each corner toward the center of each square. Place 1/4 teaspoon jam in the center. Fold every other tip to center over the jam to form a pinwheel. Refrigerate 10 minutes.

Lightly brush tops of dough with egg white; sprinkle with sugar. Bake in a preheated 350 oven 12 to 15 minutes, or until golden brown. Let cool.

Makes about 3 dozen cookies.
