Glazed Cheese Croissants

2013-03-07

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup small-curd cottage cheese
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled), plus more for rolling dough
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Sugar Glaze (see below)

Method:

  1. In a medium bowl, combine butter, cottage cheese, flour, and salt. Shape into a disk, and wrap in plastic; refrigerate until firm, about 2 hours.
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. On a well-floured surface, roll dough out to a 14-inch circle. Cut circle evenly into 8 triangles. Roll each triangle up, from wide end to tip, turning ends of roll in to form a crescent shape. Place croissants 3 inches apart on a rimmed baking sheet (to catch any drips); bake 30 to 35 minutes or until golden brown.Transfer to wire rack. Cool 10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, make Sugar Glaze: In a glass measuring cup, add 2 teaspoons milk by 1/2 teaspoonfuls to 1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar, stirring until glaze is of a drizzling consistency. It should be thin enough to pour while still thick enough to coat croissants. Drizzle over croissants. Serve warm, or let cool to room temperature. Store at room temperature in an airtight container, up to 2 days.

    I just read not to leave chess pie out more than 2 hours at room temperature. I’ve been making it each holiday, and arrive with it around noon depending if it’s Thanksgiving or Christmas. Now that I think about it, once there, we may not eat until 2 or 3. Then we watch sports all day only to snack again in the evening, including my pie and other things. I don’t remember ever getting sick, so is that true about the 2 hour limit?

    I made a pasta dish with cooked hamburger in it. I accidentally left it out overnight for about 5-6 hours at room temperature. Is it ok to eat or should I toss it? I don’t want to get sick but I hate to waste it. Thanks!

    I am throwing a 90th birthday luncheon for my mother in late October. The luncheon will be held at a country club. She’s not thrilled with any of the dishes she’s seen so far and the chef indicated she can set her own menu. She doesn’t want a brunch with omelets, or quiche or crepes. She’s thinking more along the lines of a beef or fish or chicken entree with a salad to begin with a veggie and starch and of course her cake(!) However we can’t seem to come up with something suitable for a luncheon for primarily older people. Any suggestions?

    Explain the chemistry behind fats that are solid at room temperature and those that are liquids at room temperature. Does this have anything to do with which fats are considered “good” or “bad?” Please clarify.
