Gold Medal Flour

Ingredients

  • 2 cups Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup butter or margarine
  • 1 cup cottage cheese
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
  • 1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup chopped pecans

Steps

  • 1
    In medium bowl, place flour. Cut in 1 cup butter using pastry blender (or pulling 2 table knives through mixture in opposite directions), until crumbly. Stir in cottage cheese until blended. Divide dough into thirds; wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate 2 hours.
  • 2
    Heat oven to 350°F. On well-floured surface, roll one part of the dough into 10-inch round (dough will be sticky). Brush with melted butter. Sprinkle with one-third each of the brown sugar and pecans; lightly press into dough with rolling pin. Repeat with remaining dough, melted butter, brown sugar and pecans.
  • 3
    Cut each round into quarters. Cut each quarter into 4 wedges. Roll up starting with long end; place, point side down, on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 30 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove immediately from cookie sheets to cooling racks; cool completely.
